Kit Calvert: Wensleydale Top Tier Cheese
£5.60 Per 200g
A cheese celebrating the father of Wensleydale cheese ‘Kit Calvert’. Kit Calvert was a Yorkshire businessman who helped to save the Wensleydale Creamery from closure in 1935.
Kit Calvert is an old-style Wensleydale cheese with loads to shout about. It’s buttery, creamy and lovingly hand-crafted
Flavour Profile: Creamy, crumbly & full of flavour, this cheese is made to a recipe predating WW2! Wensleydale Top Tier is cloth bound and matured for longer, which gives it a more rounded flavour and creamier texture than younger Wensleydale.
Drink Pairing: A lovely crisp white wine. We love this with our New Hall Vineyard Left Field Blend, it is quite simply, a match made in heaven.
About the Maker: The Wensleydale Creamery is the home of the famous, crumbly and delicious Yorkshire Wensleydale cheese! It is based in the heart of the Yorkshire Dale National Park in Hawes, Wensleydale. The cheesemaking in this area can be dated back as far as 1150 and the creamery was built in 1897! That’s a lot of cheese!
How to Enjoy: On a cracker with some chutney. We love Wensleydale cheese for exactly what it is and it is best enjoyed as such.
Our utmost concern is get you the right cheese in the right condition right to your door. With that in mind please allow 3-5 working days for your cheese box to arrive.
However the package will be posted on a next day service so as not to spend too much time in transit. Each package will come with a gel ice pack to keep the temperature in the box as low as possible.
