GUBBEEN

Type

Pasteurised cows milk

Origin

Near Schull, Co Cork

Tasting Notes

Gubbeen is a mellow cheese, capturing the characteristic smokiness of a washed rind without concealing the light, fresh flavours of the milk. It has a semi-soft paste with a silky smooth, pliable texture and fresh, milky taste with a mild buttery, nutty accent

Interesting Facts

Gubbeen House has been in the Ferguson family since Tom Ferguson’s great-great-great grandfather arrived in the area on a bicycle. Giana Ferguson meanwhile grew up in Spain (on a small farm owned by her father in the mountains above Alora, where she used to make goats cheese) and subsequently in France

GOUDA

Type

Cows milk

Origin

Gouda, Netherlands

Tasting Notes

A creamy full flavoured cheese with a sweet nutty taste. As it ages, it develops a caramel sweetness and has a slight crunchiness

Interesting Facts

The first mention of Gouda cheese dates from 1184, making it one of the oldest recorded cheeses in the world still made today.

The cheese is named after the Dutch city of Gouda, not because it is produced in or near the city, but because it has historically been traded there

LEVIN DOWN

Type

Organic pasteurised cow’s milk

Origin

Goodwood, Chichester, West Sussex

Tasting Notes

Smooth and firm textured with long, rich flavours and a tangy bite at the end

Interesting Facts

Goodwood Home Farm is one of the largest lowland, mixed organic farms in the UK, sited on the South Downs National Park and has been supplying food to the Dukes of Richmond for the last 300 years

PICOS BLUE

Type

A mix of cows and goats milk and wrapped in Maple leaves

Origin

Picos de Europa, Northern Spain

Tasting Notes

A smooth, creamy blue cheese made using a mixture of cow’s and goat’s milk this cheese comes wrapped in vine leaves and has a pungent, spicy flavour that is certainly not for the faint-hearted

Interesting Facts

Picos Blue is made in the Asturian Mountains of Spain and was traditionally matured in high caves in the cold, damp and salty winds of the Bay of Biscay. The steep and high peaks are one of the most beautiful sites of Spanish geography and were once the barrier which led to the isolation of the geographic region of Leon. The dairy where the cheese is made, Picos de Europa, is situated in the main town in the valley of Valdeón and has been run by two brothers and their families for over 35 years
