A naturally rinded, blue-veined, hand-made soft cheese, made with pasteurised milk. When fresh, at 3-4 weeks, it has a relatively mild blue flavour but the IOW Blue accelerates quickly to develop a much spikier character than when young. Being naturally rinded, it is covered in green, blue, grey and white moulds, giving the cheese a depth of character, while the variety of surface moulds that grow on the rind ensure it stands out on any cheeseboard.
Known for its succulent-yet-crumbly texture (referred by the Kirkham family as its “Buttery crumble”), Kirkhams Lancashire has a tangy, bright and full flavour.
Made with raw cow’s milk and animal rennet
Stichelton can exhibit a multitude of long lasting flavours, ranging from green apples to beef stock. It has a juicy acidity and toasty, biscuity notes towards the rind. The texture tends to be soft and creamy.
Not dissimilar to a French Tomme De Savoie, Stoney Cross is mould-ripened and has a smooth texture with a creamy, buttery texture. Sweet and subtle flavours, with a distinctly earthy finish, the name Stoney Cross comes from an old World War II airfield, some 2 miles to the South of of the Lyburn creamery.
