This event is set to take place on Thursday 25th February (8- 9.15pm), and will feature five British cheeses that are already causing a stir. The cheesemakers for this selection come from one of two camps. They are either relative newcomers who have shown an incredible talent for mastering their craft in short order, or they are the descendents of cheesemaking royalty, who are creating cheeses for themselves after absorbing a lifetime of lessons from their parents.
Made with the same skill and finesse as Britain's all-time greats, the quality of these cheeses has seriously impressed both us, and the wider cheesemaking community. So we are delighted to now share this selection with you. We’ll be providing complementary crackers with the selection, and you'll also have the option of adding wine pairing suggestions, which can be delivered at the same time.
As this is a hosted event that allows you to participate and ask your own questions, tickets are strictly limited. So join up and get the lockdown lowdown on the new wave of British artisan cheese.
We will send you an email with a link to join the event on the morning of 25th February.
To ensure you receive your cheese selection for the tasting, please select delivery for 23rd February at checkout.
The Cheese Selection
140g - Goat, Raw Milk
An ashed disc with a beautifully thin, wrinkled coat and a dense paste, with a texture reminiscent of the finest ganache.
125g - Cow, Pasteurised
Made by David Jowett, from the organic milk of a mixed herd of British Friesians and Dairy Shorthorns. Wrapped in spruce bands, the cheeses ripen to glorious maturity.
Old Roan Wensleydale
125g - Cow, Raw Milk
Made traditionally on the family farm with raw milk; Old Roan rounded and smooth, rich and buttery, but balanced with a refreshing acidity. Matured for three to four months, more mineral tones appear towards the clothbound rind as the cheeses develop their full potential.
125g - Sheep, Raw Milk
Crookwheel is made by Martin Gott and Nicola Robinson on their farm in Cumbria, who made the unusual choice to avoid using commercially available starter cultures, but instead use milk from their most prized ewes to develop their own. This creates a cheese that is truly unique to their farm.
Sparkenhoe Shropshire Blue
150g - Cow, Raw Milk
A unique cheese with a beautiful, peachy coloured paste, shot through with meandering blue veins, and a mellow rich and buttery taste.
Mør Hjerte Bakeri Wholemeal Spelt and Sourdough Snap Crackers - 115g
Made to a traditional recipe, snap crackers have a few simple ingredients and a crisp, snappable texture.
Gluten-Free Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Sea Salt Crackers - 125g
Intentionally subtle, so as to never overwhelm the cheese. Made from a blend of gluten-free cereals, tapioca, buttermilk, extra virgin olive oil and sea salt.
Please select your chosen cracker from the drop down box at the top of page.
