Since 1993, we’ve combined the very best ice with the very best customer service; our clients trust us to deliver and we always do - whenever, wherever, and whatever the weather.
We’re Icebox, the UK’s expert of bagged ice, cocktail cubes, and dry ice. Since 1993, we’ve combined the very best ice with the very best customer service, delivering to the UK’s biggest festivals and events, and London’s top bars, restaurants, hotels, and caterers.
We have a small fleet of vans that deliver 7days a week, from 8am until past peoples bed time. For our regular customers we can cover the whole of London and beyond, we have even delivered ice cubes to France and Japan! However, to allow us to keep our reputation of the best ice service in London, our focus is very much on Central London, especially for first timers and one offs so please do be understanding if we have to decline to serve you.
In the early 1800s, ice harvesting as an industry took hold as horse-drawn ice cutters pulled thick blocks of ice from frozen lakes for use in insulated ice houses and cellars
Ice covers about 10% of the earths land mass and about 7% of its oceans
Ice is created when water gets below 32 degrees Fahrenheit and it freezes
The different types of ice are classified by their density. There are 16 types of ice
Glaciers are huge masses of ice that 'flow' like very slow rivers. They form over hundreds of years where fallen snow compresses and turns into ice
Hot water freezes faster than cold water. This is known as the Mpemba Effect, and no-one knows why it happens
For all our products, we set exceptionally high safety and quality standards. SALSA accredited, we produce our ice in a sterile environment, independently testing the quality of our water regularly, and ensuring that from start to finish, our clients and customers only receive the best quality ice.
As one of the earth’s most natural products, we want to make and deliver ice as sustainably as possible, so as well as reducing our environmental impact, we’re on a mission to help our clients do the same. We want to remove 2kg plastic bags of ice completely from our client’s sites ahead of the government’s Net Zero 2050 target, because by moving to 4kg and ultimately 12kg bags, we can reduce plastic consumption in this area by as much as 80%.
