Product Highlights

Made by Jeff and Chris Reid on Sgriob-Ruadh Farm on the Isle of Mull, Hebridean Blue could quite possibly be the bluest blue in the land (Britain that is).

It’s a mature blue, with the strength of a highlander. Expect full salt, full acid, full heat.

Spicy, salty and creamy. Hebridean Blue is one of Scotland’s most iconic cheeses. If you love blue, you will LOVE this!

Quote from the Cheesemonger:

“If you like blue cheese, you’ll like it a lot; if you hate blue cheese, you’ll pay someone to come and remove it from your fridge.” – Fromage Homage.

Flavour Profile: It is often compared to Stilton with its strong, tangy nature, however, we find more floral notes with a firmer texture. It is aged for up to 8 months and sits firmly in the realm of strong blue cheeses. It’s well balanced, creamy, and subtle in flavour with a gorgeous crumbly texture. 

Drink Pairing: This strong contender needs a lovely deep red or a port! Ain’t no two ways about it. Try our Don’t Tell Gary Shiraz – a gorgeous deep red wine with loads of flavour or our Barros Special Reserve port… Our mouths are watering just thinking about it.  

About the Maker: A beautiful tale of the Reade family who dreamed of owning a farm on Mull and that they did. First generation farmers and their sons bought Sgriob-Ruadh farm and began their cheese making journey step by step and now they give us this phenomenal cheese. The Reade family farm uses its own sustainable sources to produce the energy it needs: wind, wood, and an on-site hydroelectric power plant. Their innovative heat exchange system uses heat removed from the milk in the evening to warm it back up for making cheese in the morning.

How to Enjoy: Nibbled with a generous glass of red wine or port!

I tried Hebridean blue in a restaurant and asked the waiter the name, which is how I came to order some. I love the cheese but was a bit perplexed to see it came from York!!! Not sure why a cheese proclaiming to come from the Scottish islands could come from an English city… seems a bit odd. No wonder it took so long for my order to reach me!
