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, ‘washed-rind’ cheese that expresses the rich and diverse clover pasture of Chedworth’s Manor Farm. It is based on the classic French cheese Reblochon and encircled in a spruce band that helps hold it together and adds a pine-y note to the cheese.
Lanark Blue. Unpasturised sheep’s milk, vegetarian. 250g.
An iconic farmhouse British cheese, this is Scotland’s answer to Roquefort; the rich sheep’s milk complemented by strong, powerful blue veining. Lanark Blue was created in the 1980s and has become a modern classic.
Why not chose the upgrade of Chorizo sausage, Sheffield Cheese Knife and Picked Onions to complete the set!
Yorkshire Chorizo. 200g.
Made using meat from a rare breed of Berkshire pigs, with added fennel, garlic, and black pepper plus the two key ingredients: La Vera smoked pimenton and habanero chillies.
English Pickled Onions. 454g.
English Onions pickled in 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.

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.
