Eden Valley Brie (250g) - Appleby Creamery, Cumbria

Eden Valley Brie takes its name from the Eden Valley in Cumbria where the cheese is made. Its beautifully runny texture will have it oozing off any cheese board! The flavour fills the mouth with delicate intensity and the luxurious creamy texture rounds off a sumptuous taste experience.

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).

Yorkshire Blue (150g) - Shepherds Purse, North Yorkshire

Creamy, sweet and mild, Yorkshire Blue is a great introduction to blue cheese. With age the flavour deepens and becomes more complex without compromising the mild creaminess. 

Launched in 1994, Yorkshire Blue was Shepherd's Purse's first blue cheese, and the first blue cheese to be made in Yorkshire for 30 years. 

Matured for 8 weeks.

Westcombe Red (150g) - Westcombe Dairy, Somerset

Westcombe Red is a modern take on a traditional Red Leicester, and falls somewhere between a complex Traditional Cheddar and more delicate Aged Caerphilly.

Made in traditional cloth-bound ten kilo wheels and aged for around five months, Westcombe Red boasts a good depth of flavour with lasting notes of roasted nut and fresh summer grass.

  • Westcombe Dairy have won a number of awards, including BBC Food & Farming Award 2012 for Best Food Producer

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.
