More about this
This ‘Best of Modern British Cheese’ selection includes:
Washed-Stone. Unpasteurised cows’ milk. 250g.
Tom and Clare Noblet started to make cheese in 2015 on their dairy farm on the edge of the Lake District, creating a Dales-style cheese they called Fellstone. Washed-Stone is a variant on that –young Fellstones are washed repeatedly in brine to give the cheese an orange hue and more savoury flavour. [When Washed Stone is unavailable a similar, softer washed-rind cheese, Rollright, will be supplied.]
Hafod Cheddar. Unpasteurised cows’ milk, organic. 250g.
With only 65 Ayrshire cows providing the milk, this clothbound Cheddar is made to a very traditional recipe, giving a cheese that is buttery and smooth, with that special Cheddar tang.
Baron Bigod Brie. Unpasteurised cows’ milk. 250g.
Sold only when perfectly ripe, this modern creation is Britain’s first unpasteurised Brie to be made on the farm in traditional large (3 kg) form and ladled only by hand. The French will be jealous…
Young Buck. Unpasteurised cows’ milk. 250g.
An outstanding raw-milk blue cheese from Northern Ireland. Using old-fashioned British blue cheese recipes from the turn of the 19th century, Young Buck cheese is traditionally made and hand-ladled to produce a rich, lingering flavour. An impressive debut cheese..

In the current pandemic not all our suppliers are able to supply us as consistently as they were.
What this means is that occasionally we may give you a substitute in some cheese selections. This will always be a carefully-selected similar cheese of equal or greater value.
If you do not want us to supply a suitable substitute in this way, state in the ‘special instructions’ at checkout: “No replacements”, in which case we may have to phone you if there is an issue.
