More about this
This cheese selection box includes:
Baron Bigod Brie. Unpasteurised cows’ milk. 250g.
Sold only when perfectly ripe, this modern creation is Britain’s first unpasteurised Brie to be made on the farm in traditional large (3 kg) form and ladled only by hand. The French will be jealous…
Sparkenhoe Vintage. Unpasteurised cows’ milk. 250g.
The only unpasteurised farmhouse red Leicester made in the world. This Sparkenhoe vintage version is aged for 18 months, which gives it a strong, powerful flavour.
Devon Blue. Pasteurised cows’ milk. 210g.
Devon Blue was one of the first modern British blue cheeses, created by Robin Congdon in the 1970s. Unpressed, French-style, it is sold by The Courtyard Dairy at four months old, when it is flinty, minerally and light with a subtle blue taste.
Cais Na Tire. Pasteurised sheep’s milk. 250g.
Reminiscent of the finest Manchego, with a touch of Ireland. Using their own sheep’s unpasteurised milk, the Callahan family have created a hard sheep’s milk cheese, aged for nine months, that has a sweet hazelnutty flavour with earthy, heathery undertones – capturing the nature of the rugged Irish landscape.
