Petit Langres AOC
Petit Langres AOC is a SOFT, succulent, creamy Champagne de Marc washed rind cheese with a firm, dense silky interior. Drum shaped with an indented top, also known as "fontaine". This allows the brine to pool in the crater of the cheese, and seep slowly into the interior of the cheese to give it its richer consistency, pungent nose and fruity flavour.
Pairing Suggestion - LEMON CHEESE PRESERVE
The individual cheese weighs 180g.
Rachel is a semi-firm goats cheese with a lightly washed rind with subtle sweet and nutty lingering flavours. As the cheese matures it is washed regularly in a brine solution which gives it its pinky rind with occasional neon orange and yellow spots. Rachel is a delightfully fragrant cheese, for those who enjoy a cheese that is not too strong or overly ‘goaty’ on the palate.
Pairing Suggestion - MILLER'S DAMSELS CHARCOAL BISCUITS
A whole cheese weighs approx 2kg
Bleu des Causses AOC

Gouda with Truffles
Gouda is a semi soft cow’s milk cheese from the Netherlands, named after the town where it was originally traded. GOUDA is traditionally made in flat wheels, each with a thin natural rind. It has a smooth and ivory coloured interior. GOUDA is one of the oldest European cheeses and has been a popular cheese since the 12th century. It was so popular that it was shipped to France and further afield and has been produced in several different countries. Gouda with Truffles is an unusual creamy, washed curd, Gouda cheese with the addition of chopped black Italian Truffles that blend perfectly with the texture of the cheese.

Mrs Kirkhams Traditional Lancashire
Mrs Kirkhams Traditional Lancashire is a rich, hard pressed full fat traditional crumbly style Lancashire with a very individual character. The cheeses' flavours are sharp and citrusy, with a lingering Lancashire tang. An excellent melting cheese that progresses to a soft, silky, custard-like texture when cooked. This is lovely grilled on toast.
Pairing Suggestion - DRIVERS CUCUMBER RELISH
Mrs Kirkhams Traditional Lancashire comes as a half wheel which weighs approx 2.5kg
A gorgeous little cheese with a unique truncated shape and a soft, springy texture that becomes meltingly creamy with age. Pale silver in appearance due to the cheese being coated lightly in ash to create the geotrichum rind and leave a very subtle peppery undertone, boasting a delicious rind that becomes dominated by blues and greens as it ages. The initial flavours of sweet cream followed by nutty notes and a soft tasting, rich, opulent and smooth flavour - developing more complexity when aged. The texture becomes increasingly silky as the cheese matures. once at its softest, we suggest cutting the top off the pyramid cheese and dipping bread and crackers into the liquid cheese inside like a little mini fondue.
