From the local Shropshire milk to fabulous cheese, here is all you need to know about our selection of artisan cheeses! Which will be your favourite?
Newport – The Crowd Pleaser – Matured for 3-4 months, the Newport cheese has a unique flavour. It has a mellow buttery taste and flakey texture with a subtle aromatic sweetness. The cheese is a pale tangerine colour – but don’t worry, it bares no resemblance to the taste of tangerines! Phew!
Wrekin White – The Vintage – Our oldest and dearest, the Wrekin White. Matured for a minimum of 3 months, usually longer to ensure its taste develops with age. This cheese is smooth and creamy and dotted with eyelets. It has a nutty flavour yet fruity aroma – a must for the cheese board if you want to impress your friends.
Newport 1665 – The Historian – Award winning and always worthy of a ‘mmmmm’ when someone tastes it, this cheese is smooth and buttery but tastes light, mellow and sweet. What makes this cheese just so special is that the whole wheel is cold smoked over oak chips at Morgan’s Country Butchers and Smokey. The result is a cheese with a lightly oak smoked flavour that lifts it. Named after the year of the great fire of Newport in 1665, this oak smoked cheese is packed with personality!
Wrekin Blue – The Funky One – The rustic natural rind encompasses the unctuous cheese inside. Mottled with blue streaks and pockets, the smoky blue piquancy has a mineral like full flavour.
Caer Caradoc – The Break Away – The Caer Caradoc cheese is based on a Caerphilly style of cheese which is matured for two to three months! This creates a light and crumbly cheese which has a distinct fresh citrus taste. Pair this cheese with a punchy chutney for a great combination!
Ironbridge – The Heritage One – This individual cheese truckle weighs around 200 grams! It has a natural rind and ripens to a soft oozing interior with a mild blue flavour between 5 – 8 weeks. But its worth the wait – trust us!
Shrewsbury Fretta – The Newbie – Do you like it naked? This one is our latest cheese to add to the collection. Made with raw cows milk and lightly salted, it has a creamy, crumbly fresh taste and is great crumbled into salads, savoury tarts and even a stuffed lambs loin!
