Named after the nearby village of Esrickle, Elrick Log is made on a farm in South Lanarkshire, Scotland, at the foot of the Pentland Hills. Selina Cairns took over cheesemaking duties from her father Humphrey Errington, who had sought to reinvigorate the upper Clyde area’s rich tradition of cheesemaking after moving to the farm in the 1980s. She continues to make cheese together with her sister-in-law Angela. The animals are tended to by Selina’s husband Andrew, making Errington Cheese a true family affair. The Erringtons farm two flocks: the Lacaune ewes whose milk is used to make the dairy’s sheep’s cheeses and a herd of around 150 goats – a mixture of Saanen, Toggenburg and Alpine. It is the goats' milk that is used to make Elrick Log. The cheese is mould-ripened, causing it to soften from the outside in as it matures.

FAQs

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.

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.
