Gubeen has a warm pinky washed rind wrapped over its buttery core. Sweet when young, it develops a more pungent aroma as it ages but the flavour is deep and lasting. One of our favourites of the moment. From County Cork in Ireland.
This artisan cheese is nutty, earthy and has a hint of caramel which lingers pleasantly, long after the cheese has been devoured. The milk reaches the dairy still warm and that is where the magic happens with traditional starter cultures and rennets. Everything except the turning is done by hand here: the mixing of the salt; the stacking; and the binding with linen. These clever people have cut into the hillside to create their own cave for maturing as many as 6,000 cheddars.
Perl Las Blue
Creamy, salty and golden, this organic cheese is simply unique and has a pleasant, lingering flavour.
Not all cheeses are created equally – forget the soggy Stilton your Great Aunt Maude would scoop out of a jar taken from the top shelf of the kitchen cupboard and blow a puff of dust from the top. Sit up and pay attention as this cheese deserves an audience! In cheese history this is a relative newcomer to the circuit. Made in Mid-Wales in response to European Community milk quotas which were threatening the family farm, this business was established in 1987 and since then they haven’t looked back (in anger… as the song goes).
The Truffler has a truly unique character that will surprise and excite your palate. Wild truffle tones are devilishly flavoursome, making this mould ripened cheese truly unique and one that is nosed out by the cheese connoisseur such as yourself.
Distinctly earthy, a slight mushroom note is associated with the rind. As soon as you cut into him, a fresh and milky aroma will appear combined with subtlety of truffles. As this brie matures its aroma intensifies but still remains creamy with the truffle slowly replacing those milky notes.
The Truffler is a subtle cheese throughout its life, but as he develops the cheese and truffle flavour will intensify, the perfect compliment to the velvet soft creaminess.
