More about this
This strong and mature cheese selection box for includes:
Tunworth. Pasteurised cows’ milk. 250g.
An English Camembert good enough to make a Frenchman weep: vegetal, porcini-flavoured and intense. The Courtyard Dairy select only particular Tunworths that are more wrinkled, for a more intense flavour.
Old Winchester. Pasteurised cows’ milk, vegetarian. 250g.
Needing an outlet for their milk, Mike and Judie developed Old Winchester. This Gouda-style cheese is aged for 18 months; caramelised, smoky and with crystalline crunches.
Rollright. Pasteurised cows’ milk. 250g.
A mellow, buttery-rich, ‘washed-rind’ cheese that expresses the rich and diverse clover pasture of King Stone Farm deep in the Cotswolds, based on the classic French cheese ‘Reblochon’.
Beenliegh Blue. Pasteurised sheep’s milk, vegetarian. 210g.
Originally based on a Roquefort recipe, Beenleigh Blue cheese turned out quite different: with a delicate sweetness and minerally, floral flavour to balance the blue undertones.
Why not chose the upgrade of Chorizo sausage, Sheffield Cheese Knife and Picked Shallots to complete the set!
Yorkshire Chorizo. 200g.
Made using meat from a rare breed of Berkshire pigs, with added fennel, garlic, black pepper plus the two key ingredients: La Vera smoked pimenton and habanero chillies.
English Pickled Onions. 454g.
English Onions pickled in a warmly-spiced, sweet, malt vinegar, with a crunchy bite.
Perfect for Ploughman’s lunch and traditional British cheeses.
Sheffield Rosewood Knife.
Crafted by traditional cutlers in Sheffield, this gleaming, beautifully fashioned knife is a joy to use. Slices slivers of cheese with ease; it is also good for general use.
This folding pocket-knife has a polished rosewood handle and carbon steel blade.

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.
