Tasting notes

Dorset Blue Vinny - A multi-award winning English blue cheese, little known outside the West Country.  It is handmade at Woodbridge Farm in north Dorset to 300-year-old recipe using hand-skimmed milk from the farm's Holstein-Friesian cows. Dorset Blue Vinny is a crumbly cheese veined with blue.  It is creamy in flavour with a mellow blue taste and edible rind.  Pasteurised cow's milk / Vegetarian rennet. 

Double Barrel Poacher - A small number of Lincolnshire Poacher cheeses are specially selected for extended maturing.  These become known as 'Double Barrel', perfect for those who enjoy really big flavours.  Matured between two and three years, this cheese is rich, strong and savoury.  Deep pungent flavours are offset by bright and fruity notes.  Unpasteurised cow's milk / Traditional rennet. 

Cornish Kern From the makers of Cornish Yarg, a Gouda-style hard cheese with Alpine nuttiness. Coated in distinctive black wax, Kern takes its name from theCornish word for "round". It was crowned Supreme Champion at the World Cheese Awards in London in 2017. Pasteurised cow's milk / Vegetarian rennet.
