Berthillon is a French manufacturer and retailer of luxury ice cream and sorbet, 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 from 1954 operated a café and hotel called "Le Bourgogne".[1]

The ice cream shop became famous in 1961 when a French restaurant guide Gault Millau wrote about "this astonishing ice cream shop hidden in a bistro on the Ile Saint-Louis."[2] They are known for using fresh and high quality ingredients [3] and keep the recipe of their sorbet (i.e. the proportion of milk and egg) secret. [4]

Raymond Berthillon, founder of Berthillon, died on 9 August 2014.[5][6]
