You must be over 18 to purchase this product.
This Cheese & Wine Hamper includes:
Tunworth Camembert. Pasteurised cows’ milk. 250g.
An English Camembert good enough to make a Frenchman weep: vegetal, porcini-flavoured and intense. The Courtyard Dairy selects only particular Tunworths that are more wrinkled, for a more intense flavour.
Hafod Cheddar. Unpasteurised cows’ milk, organic. 250g.
With only 65 Ayrshire cows, this clothbound Cheddar is made to a very traditional recipe, producing a cheese that is buttery and smooth, with that special Cheddar tang. At The Courtyard Dairy the best Hafod truckles are selected and further aged until 14-months old.
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.
Quince Paste. 200g.
A classic Membrillo (Quince) paste made in Spain. A great alternative to preserves and grapes with cheese.
Water Crackers. 100g.
A neutral water cracker that is deliciously crisp and toasty. A perfect accompaniment to any cheese.
Ciello Rosso – Nero d’ Avola – red wine (75cl, 13.5% abv).
Made by one of Italy’s foremost biodynamic winemakers, this classic Italian red is a medium bodied, with spicy and red-fruit aromas. Supplied and selected by Buon Vino.
This product will have two weeks’ shelf life from the date of delivery. Conveniently, at checkout you can choose a delivery date even well in the future if you would like your cheese delivering for a specific event.
The beer/wine is sold and dispatched by Buon Vino at the same time as your 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.
