Ice Cream Bar Studio Miri X Croffle presented its Tuak ice cream at the recently held FHA-Food & Beverage 2023 in Singapore. Tuak is a famous rice wine in Sarawak made from fermented glutinous rice, yeast, water and sugar.
We have seen many applications of alcohol in cold treats including the latest sensation moutai-infused ice cream in China now available in packaged format.
Tuak ice cream has a low alcohol content to keep the ice cream stable. It comes with various flavours including ginger, passion fruit and roselle.
Tuak ice cream has potential in Malaysia especially in specialty stores and foodservice that serve non-halal options. Tuak ice cream taps into local sourcing and provenance, while presenting consumers with a new way to enjoy local rice wine in an easy-to-consume format.
