Berthillon is a famous manufacturer and retailer of traditional, home-made ice cream, with its primary store on the Île Saint-Louis in Paris, France. The company is owned and operated by the Chauvin family, descendants of the eponymous Monsieur Berthillon, who opened the first store in 1954.
Berthillon sells its ice cream in bulk and by the scoop from its shop on the island, but many other retailers in Paris sell its ice cream in cones and cups, and some grocers sell larger amounts.
Berthillon fame derives in part from its use of natural ingredients, with no chemical preservatives, sweeteners or stabilizers. Its ice creams are made from milk, cream and eggs. Flavourings derive from natural sources (cocoa, vanilla, fruit, etc.).
