Product details

Inspired by the classic French cheese Morbier, but made in the rolling hills of the Cotswolds. Ashcombe is a smooth and supple cheese, with a striking line of ash running through the middle. The paste brings rich notes of hazelnuts, while the rind can offer more savoury tones. An Anglo-French fusion with real je ne sais quoi.

Winner of Best English Cheese, Best Farmhouse Cheese, Best New Cheese, Best Washed Rind Cheese, and Supreme Champion at the Artisan Cheese Awards 2021.

*A whole Ashcombe weighs 6kg. Smaller weights are a cut of a whole cheese.
