With a very distinctive ammonite shaped round appearance, and covered in an attractive natural mould-ripened rustic rind, the deep yellow moist interior is spread with dark blue-green veins. It has a rich blue taste, smooth buttery texture with a melt-in-the-mouth flavour without the harshness associated with some blue cheeses.
At once complex and balanced, savoury and mellow, this farmhouse revival of a classic British cheese is full of flavour without any aggressive acidity. the texture is firm, chewy and pleasantly moist.
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.
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
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.
