We've put together a cheese hamper that we feel represents some of the best of British cheese. There are so many great British cheeses available that it'd be impossible to fit them all in one selection but we've picked these four as they work well together and can appeal to all tastes.
Quickes Mature Cheddar - A smooth and well rounded cheddar with lovely nutty, earthy taste with a slight tangy finish. Matured for a minimum of 12 months and made with unpasteurised milk and tradition rennet. A jewel in the crown of English cheese
Colston Bassett Stilton - A superb example of a classic Stilton. Hand ladled and made with pasteurised milk (as all Stiltons are currently) Colston Bassett has a lovely rich buttery flavour with beautiful blue marbling.
Cornish Yarg - A very popular cheese with our customers and it's easy to see why. Wrapped in nettle leaves, Cornish Yarg has a beautiful appearance and one of the best parts of being a cheesemonger is unwrapping a whole Cornish Yarg. Mellow flavour with creamy texture and a mild and pleasing bitterness from the nettle leaves. A relatively new British cheese that's starting to become as famous as cheddars and stiltons.
Baron Bigod Brie - A British Brie to rival the French classics. Made with unpasteurised milk in Bungay, Suffolk, Baron Bigod has a wonderful creamy flavour, satisfyingly not too strong. We love watching a cut Baron Big start to ooze as there's a good chance we'll get to eat some of it!
This selection contains approximately 250g of each cheese.
