The Best of Britain
Showcasing the best of British cheese
Britain’s modern cheese resurgence has been growing in stature over recent years. This selection of four cheeses features some of the finest examples of farmhouse British cheese available today.
It comprises four strong and rich cheeses, each outstanding in their class: vegetal, intense, soft Tunworth Camembert; strong and crystalline 18-month Old Winchester; runny Winslade; and Scotland’s Lanark Blue, good enough to give the best Roquefort a run for its money.
More about this
This Best of Britain 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.
Winslade. Pasteurised cows’ milk, vegetarian. 230g.
A fairly 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.
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.
