An aseptic ice making and dispensing system produces and dispense ice cubes without exposing the water or ice to the environs. An ice producing section is coupled to an external water supply to receive water therefrom and is coupled to a refrigeration section to selectively circulate refrigerant to the ice producing section so as to freeze water from the water supply into an ice stick. The ice stick is fed to an ice harvesting section to produce ice cubes therefrom. An ice transport and delivery section transports the ice cubes from the ice harvesting section to an ice delivery station.
