WOOKEY HOLE CAVE AGED CHEDDAR

This crumbly, earthy Dorset cheddar has just been crowned Supreme Champion at the international cheese awards. The humidity and year-round temperatures of Wookey Hole Caves are said to hold the secret of its success.

 

SOMERSET BRIE

Ripened using traditional methods, the Somerset Brie portray a superior creamy taste and richer consistency. The cheese’s aroma suggests mushrooms with a hint of green grass. It is a mild, fresh cheese with an edible rind.

LITTLE RYDING

BATH SOFT

This Square cheese is soft and yielding with a white bloomy rind, once cut into it reveals an ivory coloured interior. The ƒlavour is mushroomy and creamy with a hint of lemons. This Cheese dates back to the time of Admiral Lord Nelson who, in 1801, was sent some by his father as a gift. It was recorded that Nelson’s sweet heart was ‘gratiƒied’ by the ƒlavour of this cheese!

Mild, creamy and fresh when young, this distinctive goats cheese mellows to a silky smoothness with a hint of apples, yeast and nuts. Each Little Wallop is washed in Somerset Cider Brandy before being wrapped in vine leaves. At about six weeks it almost runs off the plate underneath its thin white edible crust.

 

FAIRLEIGH WALLOP

(Pasteurised goat’s milk)

Farleigh Wallop’s log shape makes it easy to slice and grill, one of the reasons this is a favourite with chefs and home cooks. The Farleigh Wallop is rolled in thyme, a seasoning that balances beautifully with the sharp bite of the cheese.

 

THE GODDESS

Gold award winner at the world cheese awards! A delectable semi-soft cheese made with rich Guernsey cows’ milk. The curds and rind are gently washed in Temperley Somerset Cider Brandy giving the paste and the rind a wonderful silky golden hue
