Monthly Cheese Selection
SOMETHING TO LOOK FORWARD TO...MONTHLY CHEESE SELECTION
What are you waiting for?
If you find the idea of three perfect cheeses arriving on your doorstep
exciting, then make a date with our monthly cheese selection.
We choose cheeses from what is inseason and in the best condition, and we provide detailed cheese notes to chew on.
It’s not a club, because you may buy one month’s selection a year, all twelve, or simply dip in and dip out whenever you choose – and of course the selection makes a wonderful present for a cheese-lover.
Every selection contains around 600g of freshly cut and individual cheeses (enough for 6–8 people) plus a pack of our own The Fine Cheese Co. Crackers (a different one every month).
Our monthly selection arrives on the first Thursday of each month, ready for the weekend.
A monthly selection costs £36 including overnight delivery to most GB mainland destinations.
6 selections cost £190 delivered, if paid in advance (save £26).
12 selections cost £360 delivered, if paid in advance (save £72 - 2 months FREE).
A selection of cheeses in bloom to celebrate spring in all its glory.
Sharpham Rustic. C, U, V.
Sharpham Rustic is made from the rich, golden organic milk of the Estate’s herd of Jersey cows that graze on the lush meadows above the river Dart. The cheese has an elliptical shape, a deep golden curd and a rich flavour. It is a wonderful example of a talented cheese maker, Debbie Mumford, using old skills to create a new cheese.
By adding cream back into the cheese, Debbie captures the richness of a triple cream (like Pierre Robert), and then, by maturing the cheese, she creates a more concentrated flavour.
Lingot de Cocagne. E, U, O.
Lingot de Cocagne is made in the Tarn region of France by M. Teotski at Sarl La Ginestarii. Sarl La Ginestarii is a tiny farmhouse cheese maker working exclusively with organic milk.
We fell in love with this cheese back in 2010, but made a promise to La Ginestarii that we wouldn’t sell too much! True to our word, we stock this solely in our shop and send to other customers on very special occasions only. This is one such occasion.
The cheese is lactic-set over a long period of time before being hand-ladled and matured for about four weeks. It perfectly captures the richness of ewes’ milk with a subtle taste that strengthens with time.
Cashel Blue. C, P, V.
Irelands' most famous blue cheese, Cashel Blue is gentle and crumbly when young; but it matures to become a creamy-textured cheese with a full flavour. It was created in 1984 by the Grubb family, who were farmers on the Tipperary Plains. The farm and dairy are overlooked by the Rock of Cashel (from where the cheese takes its name).
Soft and creamy, with a light blue tang, Cashel Blue’s soft silkiness melts in the mouth.
The Fine Cheese Co. Fig Crackers
A honeyed scent and a fragrant taste, for sheep's milk cheeses.
