The Bath Soft Cheese Company
We are delighted to be adding four of the Bath Soft Cheese Co’s products to our range from March.
Bath Soft 250g
This square cheese is soft and yielding with a white bloomy rind.
Once cut into, it reveals an ivory-coloured interior. The flavour is mushroomy and creamy with a hint of lemons. It comes wrapped in parchment paper with a red wax seal. This Cheese dates back to the time of Admiral Lord Nelson who, in 1801, was sent some by his father as a gift. It was recorded that Nelson’s sweetheart was ‘gratified’ by the flavour of this cheese.
Wyfe of Bath 250g
Succulent, nutty and creamy. This semi-hard cheese is reminiscent of buttercups and summer meadows. It is made by placing the curd in cloth lined baskets. The cheese retains the basket shape and has a soft light caramel colour. It is made with vegetarian rennet.
Wyfe of Bath takes its name from Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales and, like the tale, when you cut into a Wyfe of Bath you will get a taste of old England.
Merry Wyfe of Bath 200g
An award-winning washed-rind cheese made with Wyfe of Bath curds which are pressed and then washed in cider every other day for four weeks.
This cheese has a distinctive pungent orange (edible) rind and a rich, creamy texture.
Launched in May 2017, the “Merry Wyfe” has already won gold at three cheese awards: The World Cheese Awards, the Artisan Cheese Awards at Melton Mowbray and the Global Cheese Awards at Frome.
Bath Blue 200g
Organic cow’s milk, Bath Blue was crowned overall champion at the 2014/15 World Cheese Awards. Ripened for eight to ten weeks to give a creamy blue veined taste and a characteristic, clean aroma, Bath Blue has been likened to Stilton – try it and see how you think it compares.
