With Christmas just around the corner now, we’ve launched a festive hamper that is the perfect gift for the foodies in your life!

The Festive Hamper includes a selection of cheeses from some of our favourite cheesemakers, as well as a pack of award-winning Peter's Yard Crackers and an award-winning Tracklements Chutney.

Inside each box, you'll also find collectible cards for each cheese, including information about the cheesemaker, flavour profiles, and awards.

And for every box bought, we'll donate a meal to a Trussell Trust food bank on your behalf.

Baron Bigod (250g) - Fen Farm, Suffolk

Baron Bigod is the only traditional raw milk Brie-de-Meaux style cheese produced in the UK, and one of only a handful of its type in the world to be made by the farmer on the farm.

Beneath its nutty, mushroomy rind, Baron Bigod has a smooth, silky golden layer that will often ooze out over the delicate, fresh and citrusy centre.

Gorwydd Caerphilly (150g) - Trethowan Brothers, Somerset

Gorwydd Caerphilly offers multiple flavours within one cheese. The centre is sharper, rich and fresh while closer to the rind presents a contrasting earthy, natural flavour.

Todd and Maugan Trethowan, the cheese-making brothers behind Gorwydd Caerphilly, have had an amazing year in 2021, scooping some outstanding awards including 3 Gold Stars at the Great Taste Awards as well as Best British Cheese at the World Cheese Awards.

Beauvale (150g) - Cropwell Bishop Creamery, Nottingham

Beauvale is the only blue of the pack and is really something special, made by Cropwell Bishop Creamery.

Beauvale has been carefully developed to perfection, and like an Italian dolcelatte, it melts in pockets at room temperature. With a soft, spreadable texture and mellow flavour, Beauvale is perfect for both Stilton fans and those who prefer a milder blue.

Mayfield (150g) - Alsop & Walker, Sussex

One of our all-time favourites at The Cheese Collective, Mayfield has been carefully crafted by Arthur Alsop and his team in Sussex.
Mayfield is an Emmental-style cheese that is sweet, nutty and creamy, and is delicious on its own or melted into fondues or raclettes. It is matured for 5-7 months, developing into a creamy yet complex cheese with natural eyes (holes).

Keen’s Mature Cheddar (150g) - Keen’s Cheddar, Somerset

The Keen family has been making unpasteurised Keen’s Cheddar since they moved to Moorhayes Farm in 1899. Five generations later, and they are still there and proud to be producing world famous, award-winning British cheddar cheese.

Keen’s Cheddar is made using raw milk and is aged for 18 months, creating a sweet, strong, nutty and moreish cheese that crumbles in the hand and melts in the mouth.
