Flavour Profile

Cumin Gouda is made using the milk from traditional Craven breed cows, known for the excellent quality of their milk. The sweet milky flavour is balanced by the kick of the cumin seeds that are packed throughout the cheese.

Drink pairing

We paired this cheese with York Gin Outlaw at one of our Virtual Tasting Events, and found the slightly spiced seeds of the Cumin Gouda matched perfectly with the juniper-led gin.

About the producer

Cumin Gouda is made by Alastair Pearson at Botton Creamery near Whitby. Alastair uses the rich, yellow milk from his 46 Dairy Shorthorn cows to make a traditional Gouda using methods learnt in Germany and brought back to North Yorkshire. Cumin Gouda is made in Botton Village by a Camphill Community: a fully self-sustainable and biodynamic social enterprise of over 130 residents with learning disabilities, mental health problems and other special needs – and each with a key role producing and selling the cheese and its accompaniments.

How to enjoy

Remove the cheese casing, cut it into wedges and serve with strong gin, red or white wine as part of a cheese board. Gouda also tastes great on bread or crackers: carefully choose ones to balance the flavour of the cumin seeds.
