Colston Bassett Stilton
Vintage Lincolnshire Poacher
Made in Nottinghamshire, the Colston Bassett is the finest Stilton you can buy! It has a complex flavour, sweet and creamy at first before developing a long grassy piquant tang but never sharp or harsh; more mellow and fruity. It can only be made in six dairies in the counties of Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, and Leicestershire. Stilton takes its name from the town of Stilton, where it was first traded at the Bell Inn in the early 18th Century – but it cannot be made there!
*Please note that over Christmas period, this item might be replaced with Cropwell Bishop Waxed Stilton*
A superb cheddar-type cheese with a full flavour and warm pineapple after-taste.This cheese has been taste selected and matured on for 18 to 22 months. It has more depth and complexity with a lovely smooth lingering aftertaste, often with a hint of sweetness.
Handmade since 1983 in North Cerney, near Cirencester, Cerney is an award winning cheese. It is a fresh goat’s cheese, soft and moussey, hand-rolled in vegetable ash. The moist, subtle flavour with a hint of lemony tang makes this a unique local cheese!
Finn is a soft, double cream cheese with a sweet, slightly nutty and mushroomy flavour and a distinctly salty tang. Made by Charlie Westhead at Neal’s Yard Creamery it’s based on French triple cream cheeses, made from whole milk with added cream to make the cheese richer. Fresh lactic flavours cut through the creamy texture when young. Rich woody flavours of walnuts and mushrooms develop with age, especially in the rind. The Cheese is named after a dog Charlie had at the time and seems appropriate as in Irish, it means ‘great white one’!
Yarlington was born from a collaboration between local skilled artisans. David Jowett, head cheese maker at King Stone Dairy, Cellarman, and cider maker Tom Oliver. This soft, rich, oozy cheese is washed in a wild fermented cider and brine during maturation. This does allow the cheese do develop a pungent, complex rind but to offer fruity and milky aromas. A farmyardy aftertaste is noticeable, which is reminding us of its French cousin, Reblochon. After all it’s where Yarlington inspiration originally comes from!
