Mature – Cornish Gouda
Cow's cheese • Hard • British
£6.25 – £25.00
Aged from between 10-12 months, this mature Gouda has started to develop some intensity and crystalline crunch! Over the past year it has ascended to a higher level, expect caramel and toffee notes with a long mouth feel and gentle tingle to the gums!
The Cornish Gouda Company produces beautifully hand crafted artisan cheeses on a small family dairy farm in Cornwall. The Spiering family moved from the Netherlands in 1998 to start dairy farming, but due to years of poor milk prices the family could no longer afford to continue running the business. When youngest son, Giel, came home from college to a ‘For Sale’ sign on the farm gate in 2012, he decided he would make the business viable by diversifying the farm through the production of Cornish Gouda Cheese.
Cornish Gouda is produced by solely using milk from the family’s pedigree herd. All cows are born and reared on the farm, and fed by crops grown on its land. Every stage of cheese production is powered by a biomass boiler fueled by sustainable forestry where on completion each cheese is matured in an eco-friendly storage facility.
The love and care shine through from your first taste. Oh and you might just have seen them on the telly!
