CHEESE SELECTION – JUNE 2019
ISLE OF MULL CHEDDAR - SCOTLAND– COWS’ MILK – UNPASTEURISED. Isle of Mull Cheddar is a hard cow’s milk cheese produced by the company of the same name in the Inner Hebrides, off the West Coast of Scotland. It is considered to be the King of Scottish Cheddars and has won several awards including BBC Food and Farming Award, Best Scottish Cheese, British Cheese Awards Gold and World Cheese Awards. It is a traditional cheese with an ivory and somewhat soft pate. After 18 months of maturation, the cheese develops a complex, sharp, tangy and fruity flavour. Isle of Mull pairs well with Merlot, because of its onions and garlic flavour.
CROZIER BLUE - IRELAND– SHEEP MILK – PASTEURISED - VEGETARIAN. Crozier Blue is a pasteurised sheep's milk version of famous Cashel Blue, made by Jane and Louis Grubb at their farm at Beechmount, near Fethard, in County Tipperary. Invented in 1993, Crozier Blue is the only blue cheese made from sheep’s milk in Ireland.
It is a natural-rinded blue cheese. Depending on the condition, the cheese has a pale white paste, with greyish green mould. The paste is chalkier towards the centre of the cheese. It is very similar to Cashel Blue, but with a slighter whiter paste due to sheep’s milk. The taste is rich, creamy and mild with sweet blue flavour when mature.
FIVE MILE TOWN GOAT’S LOG - N.IRELAND – GOATS MILK – PASTEURISED -VEGETARIAN. Fivemiletown Creamery is based in Fivemiletown, County Tyrone, Northern Ireland, and is a producer of handmade speciality soft cheeses and cheddars. The company is a farmers' co-operative, and employs around 40 people. The creamery draws its milk supplies mostly from over 60 dairy farmers from across Northern Ireland. The company was founded in 1898 and added cheese production in 1972. Fivemiletown Creamery is the only speciality cheese maker in Northern Ireland. The goat’s log is a very crumbly, soft, handmade delicate goats cheese, fresh with a hint of lemon. Great crumbled on salad, on a biscuit or on pizza!
BRIE DE MEAUX WITH TRUFFLE - FRANCE– COW’S MILK – PASTEURISED. A truly decadent cheese. The ‘king’ of the Brie’s, the Brie De Meaux, is made just outside Paris, where 21-25 litres of milk is used to make a whole Brie De Meaux, weighing 4kgs. Inside this glorious cheese, a sandwiched layer of crème fraîche, mascarpone and chopped black truffles is spread and then the layers are fused back together during a maturing process. Beautiful, creamy indulgent.
MILLER’S ELEMENTS EARTH CRACKERS. Beetroot, Potato and Spinach Crackers baked by hand. Potatoes are sourced to create a cracker base as friable as earth itself, with a texture that first crumbles then melts in the mouth.
