Salt & Straw Ice Cream is a small-batch ice cream creator that partners with local artisans, producers and farmers to create unique and gourmet flavors. They started serving eight flavors from an ice cream cart in Portland in May 2011 and then moved to their first brick and mortar location in the city by August 2011 with an expanded ice-cream flavor menu and sundaes, inventive milkshakes and floats.
The company’s name is a nod to the origins of ice-cream making, when cream was churned in a tin pail packed with salt (to keep it cool) and straw (to insulate it from heat).
