This cheese and wine hamper includes:
Fellstone. 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. Based on a traditional old ‘Dales’ recipe of the north of England, Fellstone is aged for 3 months, by which time it has the fresh lemony-lactic flavours of a good Wensleydale, with a supple, firm texture.
Winslade. Pasteurised cows’ milk. Vegetarian. 230g.
A recent creation – a cross between Vacherin and Camembert, encircled by a spruce strip. Winslade is matured and sold by The Courtyard Dairy when it is fully ripe, rich, soft and gooey.
St Andrew’s Cheddar. Unpasteurised cows’ milk. 500g.
Jane Stewart makes cheese using rich, unpasteurised milk from her husband’s cattle. This Cheddar is classically Scottish in style: aged for 14 months, it is powerful, strong and tangy – a real, sharp traditional Cheddar.
Darling Blue. Pasteurised cows’ milk. 500g.
Darling Blue is a newly-created blue cheese made on Doddington farm, bordering Scotland, using milk fresh from their herd of cows. It is firm-textured and has delicate blue veining, which breaks down the texture of the cheese to make Darling Blue smooth and creamy with a rich, complex flavour.
Yorkshire Chorizo. Approx. 100g.
Chris Wildman’s family have been butchers since the 1800s. Taking the business in a new direction, Chris farms high up in the Yorkshire Dales at Kirkby-Malham, whilst also producing this spicy chorizo using his own (and local Yorkshire) pork.
Spiced Plum Chutney. 198g.
This dark, richly-spiced chutney has notes of plum and clove, ginger and allspice with a gentle acidity and sweetness that helps cut through even the richest of cheeses.
Yorkshire Piccalilli. 220g.
Crunchy vegetables balanced with mustard and traditional Piccalilli spices. A great Ploughman’s companion.
Isle of Arran Oatcakes. 180g.
Isle of Arran Oaties are the perfect oatcakes to go with cheese, with a crisp crunch and rich, nutty, caramelised flavour. Still made in the traditional way and baked by hand in Scotland.
Water Crackers. 100g.
A neutral water cracker that is deliciously crisp and toasty. A perfect accompaniment to any cheese.
Niepoort Tawny-Dee Port. 19.5% abv. 750ml.
The Niepoort family has been making port since 1842. Dirk Niepoort uses only the finest estate-owned grapes that are still handpicked and trodden by foot. Their Tawny-Dee Port is exceptional. Supplied and selected by Buon Vino.
All packed in the attractive wicker hamper, included as pictured.
** Tree, ‘elf on shelf’ and Christmas decorations not included **
