Choose from:
ASHLYNN GOATS’
Lovely citrusy new goats’ cheese. Brilliant white, with an edible ash rind. (Vegetarian)
GILLOT CAMEMBERT
Exceptional cheese made from raw cows’ milk to a 1912 recipe. Moulded with a ladle by one of the last traditional Camembert makers. Creamy, oozy, delicious.
BEAUVALE BLUE
The famous Stilton-maker, Cropwell Bishop, has branched out with this English version of a Gorgonzola-style blue. Soft, creamy, intensely sweet & savoury. Cries out for a glass of port or sweet dessert wine
WINTERDALE CHEDDAR
Hand-made in Kent, this award-winning unpasteurised cheese is clean and nutty with a long-lasting tang. A great alternative to cheddar and Britain’s first carbon neutrally produced and delivered cheese. (Vegetarian)
