Product Highlights

Creamy, soft and tangy – Swaledale Blue takes the classic Swaledale cheese to a whole new level. Swaledale blue is a local delight, providing a full-flavoured all-around blue cheese that doesn’t burn the palate but imparts a peppery flavour, giving it a stronger flavour than some of the more common blues around.

All around quality, from the creamy complexity to the peppery finish.

Quote from the Cheesemonger:

Our suggestion for this one is a nice rare steak. Makes an indulgent blue cheese sauce.

Cheesemaking in North Yorkshire is thought to have originated in the 11th Century when Cistercian monks settled in local abbeys, bringing with them their French cheese recipes. On passing their knowledge to local farmers, Swaledale cheese was created. Following the decline of cheese production in North Yorkshire through the 1980s, Swaledale Cheese company is now one of only a handful of dairies in the area.

Flavour Profile: You’ll be getting light and zesty Dale cheese whose firmer and more natural rind adds to the flavour. There will be hints of earthy notes with a crumbly and creamy texture, enriched with a smooth nutty flavour.

Drink Pairing: A nice red! Our Bolney Lychgate Red matches this Yorkshire blue sublimely.

About the Maker: Swaledale Cheese Company started in 1980 when the Longstaff family passed on the original Swaledale cheese processes! The Longstaff family farm was the last to be producing cheese in the area and Swaledale area and when the time came for Mrs Marjorie Longstaff to stop making cheese the Swaledale Cheese Company kept the Swaledale cheese dream alive.

How to Enjoy: Our suggestion for this one is a nice rare steak. Makes an indulgent blue cheese sauce.
