Brunswick Blue is a result of maturing experiments we have been running with Beenleigh Blue. This cheese has a slightly drier texture with more breakdown under the rind.

Beenleigh Blue is a blue sheep's milk cheese made by Ben Harris and his team at Ticklemore Cheese Dairy in Totnes, Devon. Recently, we have been experimenting with keeping some of the younger Beenleigh Blues and maturing them in our maturing rooms to create Brunswick Blue: a creamier, more mushroomy blue cheese with a rind.

We mature Brunswick Blue on shelves in our maturing rooms as opposed to keeping it wrapped and in the fridge as we do the Beenleigh Blue. Brunswick Blue is matured for about 10 weeks. In this time, we allow a natural rind to form, which helps to impart a creamier texture and mellower, mushroomy flavours.

FAQs

How much cheese to buy?

As a general rule of thumb, we would recommend roughly between 100 and 150 grams per person for after dinner, and a bit more if cheese is the focus of the meal. If you are buying cheese to serve over a couple of days or as part of a buffet, it is advisable to buy a few larger pieces. This will both look better and keep better than many small bits. To help visualise weights, a good tip is to consider that a regular supermarket pat of butter weighs between 200 and 250 grams. If you are at all unsure please give us a call for some advice.

How should I store my cheese?

The best option is to keep your cheese wrapped in its paper within a box in the fridge. This will prevent the cheese from drying out and absorbing other flavours. Your cheese will arrive wrapped in waxed cheese paper, which achieves the best possible balance between maintaining humidity around the cheese and allowing it to breathe. We are happy to provide some free extra cheese paper, just search for "cheese paper" and add it to your basket. We don't recommend cling film or foil as it can cause the cheese to sweat which will negatively affect the flavour.
