5 cracking cheeses from the fruit of our loins, showcasing the very best of british cheese. In this selection you will be getting; Wigmore, Richard III, Rachel, Doddington and Sparkenhoes Shropshire Blue.
Let’s talk about the cheeses:
Wigmore is a sophisticated, soft cheese full of vibrate flavours and great texture. Expect a complex, floral and sweet palette that will leave you wanting a little more each time.
Richard III is lightly tart with a gentle sweetness. Creamy and milky. This creamy cheese follows the classic Wensleydale recipe but has less acidity that sometimes comes with Wensleydale cheese
Rachel is an unusual, semi-hard goats cheese with a firm texture. The lightly washed rind gives it a sweet, nutty and lingering flavour. During its maturing stages, the cheese is regularly washed in braine which leads to a pinky rind.
Doddington is an incredibly accessible cheese that lies somewhere between a Leicester and a cheddar – and let us tell you, it’s perfection. It has notably sweet, caramel undertones that are accompanied with nutty characteristics and the classic cheddar texture.
Sparkenhoes Shropshire Blue is made using similar methods to how they make their Red Leicester. They add annatto to the milk, giving the cheese its glorious colour. The taste is buttery and mellow with a gentle spice to finish.
