"I think cheese is the perfect present. There are few people who don’t love it, it lasts well and good cheese is a real treat. It is the ultimate spoiling."
Here is the Cheese of the Month selection for March:
Westcombe Cheddar has a softer texture than our other Cheddars. We select batches with warm, round flavours and a balance of milkiness and juicy acidity.
Made with raw cow's milk and animal rennet. Clothbound with lard.
A washed rind soft and oozing cow's milk cheese, wrapped in a band of spruce bark. The texture is soft and glossy, and the flavour is milky, with substantial woody notes and a hint of peanut.
We sell these large format cheeses by wholesale only, and sometimes in our shops. However we do offer the small version "Little Rollright" online, which is better suited to shipping.
Made with pasteurised 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.
Made with raw cow's milk and animal rennet.
Flavours are delicate with a citric tang and textures are pleasantly dense yet creamy.
Made with raw goat's milk and animal rennet.
When will the first order be sent?
If you choose ‘Immediate' start we’ll dispatch it on the next available dispatch date after the purchase date. We dispatch Monday through Thursday for delivery Tuesday through Friday. If you opt for delivery in a future month, we'll dispatch on the next available dispatch date from the initial purchase date. For example if on the 10th of December 2019 you order a subscription to begin in February, the first order will leave us on the 10th of February 2020.
When will subsequent orders be delivered?
Subsequent orders will be dispatched on the next available dispatch date according to the frequency you have selected. For example, if a "once a month for three months" subscription is purchased on the 10th of December 2019 to begin immediately, we will dispatch on the 11th of December 2019 , the 13th of January 2020 and the 10th of February 2020.
Can I choose specific delivery days?
Yes, you are welcome to choose specific delivery days, simply contact us to specify. We need 48 hours notice to make changes to delivery dates.
Are delivery days/times guaranteed?
As with all our deliveries, we use an external courier. In the vast majority of cases they do a wonderful job with deliveries arriving in the right place at the right time. As we are outsourcing the delivery, we cannot guarantee arrival times. If you have questions regarding your delivery or you would like us to liaise with the couriers on your behalf, please contact us.
Can we swap a cheese in the selection?
Our cheese of the month subscription is intended for the truly adventurous cheese lovers. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate substitutions.
What if there is no-one in for the delivery?
The person receiving the delivery email/text notifications will have access to the 'leave in a safe place' option that the courier provides, and they can make an arrangement directly with the courier. We strongly advise against choosing the redelivery option as the cheese will already have been picked up by the couriers then and will remain in transit for an extended period. More information relating to deliveries can be found here.
What about holidays? Can we skip an order?
If you need to postpone a delivery then just give us a call at least 48 hours before dispatch and we can amend the orders to skip that month.
I’m giving a subscription as a gift, can I have something to hand over to the receiver?
When you order as a gift we send you a gift email that you can print or forward to your recipient with all the relevant information on it. Just make sure you select the ‘gift’ option above to let us know.
