This luxury cheese selection box includes:
Vacherin Mont d’Or. Unpasteurised cows’ milk. 500g.
Only made for the winter season, Vacherin Mont d’Or is hedonistic, powerful, rich, and often dribbling out of the box! The Vacherin Mont d’Or selected by The Courtyard Dairy is made by one of the most outstanding producers in the region – Sancey-Richard – and then extra-aged until eight weeks old so that the truly unctuous, rich, and piney flavours can develop fully. An alternative cheese – rich, washed-rind St James – is offered when Vacherin is out of season (April-September).
Hafod Cheddar. Unpasteurised cows’ milk. 500g.
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.
Stichelton. Unpasteurised cows’ milk. 500g.
Hand-ladled and made to a traditional recipe but with unpasteurised milk, Stichelton is creamy and nutty, with a rich yet gentle blue note.
Finn. Unpasteurised cows’ milk, vegetarian. 200g.A triple-cream cheese, a classic of the French Parisian style. Extra cream is added to the milk before making Finn, ensuring it has a rich, delectable flavour and smooth texture.

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.
