Childwickbury Cheese

Cheshire Cheese is Britain’s oldest cheese as it is believed to have been produced in Cheshire, by the Romans. It is mentioned in the Domesday Book in the 11th Century. Young Cheshire is bright and white in colour. It is a firm bodied cheese with a crumbly texture that breaks down gently in the mouth.
It has a mild, milky taste and aroma, and is clean and fresh on the palette with a very slightly tangy finish. You can get coloured Cheshire cheese, such as red Cheshire, which gets it colouring from a red vegetable dye Annatto. Despite the difference in colour the taste and texture of the cheese is the same
as the white version.

Berkswell Cheese

Berkswell cheese is produced using unpasturised ewes’ milk and yet it has the aroma of Goat to it. One unusual fact about the making of this cheese is that the moulds are left in plastic kitchen colanders which enable the cheese to have the shape it does. It is not suitable for vegetarians due to the fact that animal rennet is added in during its production. The best wine to go with this cheese is any sweet wine, to contrast the acidity. 

Beenleigh Blue Cheese

Beenleigh Blue is unique in the fact that it is one of the few blue sheep’s milk cheeses that are produced in the UK. Cylindrical in shape, it has a nice natural rind that is a little sticky with blue and white mould and a white inside that has blue streaks through it.

The flavour has a burnt caramel sweet taste to it and is a great addition if you are drinking Mead, Port, Cabernet Merlot or Sweet Cider.
