Driftwood cheese's texture is mousse-like when young, but, as it develops, it becomes intensely rich and creamy. The flavour starts out light and delicate, but a fuller flavour soon emerges as the coat begins to break down the paste of the cheese underneath.
Pete Humphries has been making cheese in the UK since 1995, from Cheddar to Bath Soft. In 2005 he joined forces with local goat herder Roger Longman to set up his own dairy, White Lake Cheese.
Using the milk from Roger’s 600+ goats and Pete’s know-how, they have developed a range of original and delicious cheeses. Indeed the number of cheeses in development in Pete’s maturing rooms is testament to his continuing creativity.
Driftwood is one of his more recent creations. It is a delicious goats’ milk log. The cheese is rolled in ash, before the grey mottled wrinkly coat is encouraged to develop over the snow white interior.

The Fine Cheese Co. is a maturer, wholesaler, retailer and exporter of artisan British cheeses. We are based in historic Bath, founded by the Romans and famous for its beautiful Georgian architecture - alongside Venice the only World Heritage city in Europe.
We have been cheese specialists for twenty years, and from the start we have nurtured and supported the cream of British cheese-makers. We stock over a hundred hand-made British cheeses: from rediscovered gems such as Devon Oke, a hard but creamy cows’ milk cheese made to the original seventeenth century recipe, to Lord of the Hundreds, an unpasteurised mature sheep’s milk cheese made in the style of an Italian Pecorino.Read more about us >
