Founded in 2011 Luther Lather initially made batches for friends as gifts. The Creamery incorporated later in 2016 via Luther Lather Shaving Creamery. The company adopted the name, from its early days when fellow hockey teammates who’s cultured slang, coined the nickname when describing in stories to other peers what exactly founder Olin Penna did.
The Creamery is based in Charlottetown Prince Edward Island which is known to be Canada’s own rendition of Nantucket.
It first opened its kiosk on the wooden boardwalks of Charlottetown selling to cruise ship passengers as they ventured into town to explore. As the business grew the kiosk + portable storefront started travelling off island to regional gift expos and artisan markets where product would nearly be sold out at weekends close.
The kiosk setup is well recognized as it's traveling caravan includes vast lobster traps, glass checkout booth, row boat and an ole wooden barber pole.
