Classic British Cheese Collection
Covering the full range of British Cheese, these are four modern day classics and winners of many awards: Cropwell Bishop Blue Stilton, Westcombe Cheddar, Tunworth and Cornish Yarg:
Cropwell Bishop: Stilton is renowned as the king of all cheeses and Cropwell Bishop is our favourite stilton. Creamy, smooth and rich ... a million miles away from the harsh, pale, immature Stiltons you may have tried in the past. Voted Best Blue Cheese and recipient of the much coveted ‘Supreme Champion’ at the British Cheese Awards.
Westcombe Cheddar: Our favourite cheddar has a deep complex flavour with a mellow lactic tang and long notes of citrus, hazelnut and caramel. Firm yet with a smooth breakdown and lingering flavour. Known in Somerset as a 'five mile Cheddar', as you’re still tasting it five miles down the road. A lovely summer cheese, it partners well with both full-bodied red dry red wines and beers. Cut cheese approx 250g.
Kit Calvert: If we say "Wensleydale" what do you expect? A white, crumbly, slightly acidic cheese ... probably stuffed with dried fruit? Well, not this one. It looks like a cheddar and manages a texture both buttery and slightly crumbly, and the taste ... far from being acidic, is rich, a little herby and a hint of honey. I find it mind-boggling how cheeses which are ostensibly the same can be so utterly different. Cut cheese approx 250g.
Tunworth: A camembert-style cheese in a class of its own. Raymond Blanc has called it “the best Camembert in the world”, which is quite an accolade from a Frenchman! Full flavoured, creamy, vegetal with hints of mushroom this traditional camembert style cheese comes in its own wooden box. Whole cheese approx 250g.
Rosebud Preserves Fig Chutney: A rich and piquant mix of juicy figs, molassed sugar, warm cinnamon and fresh orange. The prefect companion for these British cheeses. Approx 198g.
Artisan Cheese Crackers: our own neutral crackers. Approx 180g.
