This cheese is astringent, it has a nice strong acidity and a top of the palate flavour! It is crumbly with a sticky rind.
Pairs wonderfully with Port or a spicy Shiraz such as Don’t Tell Gary and some delicious fig chutney.
About the producer
The genius behind this exceptional cheese is Michael Thomson, one of the world’s new-generation cheesemakers. After studying artisan food he returned home to Northern Ireland and following some investments from his friends he was able to set up Mike’s Fancy Cheese Co. and created this wonderful cheese.
How to enjoy
The cheese is a pleaser! Like most blues, it works very well in a salad with pears and walnuts, and it teams agreeably with a fruity accompaniment such as Sheridans Fig Compote or a slice of quince cheese.
