Your cheese box includes the Devon classics:
Sharpham Brie (V) (300g): Made here on the Sharpham Dairy, Totnes, Devon. Inspired by Maurice Ash, Sharpham Brie is more of a Coulommier style cheese and has been hand-made to our own recipe at Sharpham since 1981. Buttercup yellow with fresh milk from our Jersey cow’s herd, it is a mould-ripened cheese, firm, rich, and creamy when young, softening with mushroomy notes and a chicory finish with age.
Sharpham Rustic (V) (200g): is handcrafted in our Sharpham Dairy, in Totnes, Devon. It is a semi-hard cheese, made with Jersey cow’s milk, it has a refreshing light tang that delicately balances the richness of the milk, with a lovely crumbly texture.
Sharpham Ticklemore Goat’s Cheese (200g) (V):: Sharpham Ticklemore goat’s cheese is made from pasteurised Devon goat’s milk it’s a semi-hard goat’s cheese with a beautiful stark white color, crumbly texture, and delicate subtle herbaceous hints on the palate.
Quicke’s Mature Clothbound Cheddar (P) (200g): is handcrafted using milk from Quicke’s grass-fed cows, clothbound and naturally matured, typically for 12-15 months. A rich and buttery cheddar that offers outstanding depth of flavor, which develops as it reaches the back of the palate. Brothy to grassy to caramel notes. Make sure to cut from nose to rind so you taste the beauty in a natural rinded clothbound cheese.
Ticklemore’s Devon Blue (200g) (V) is made by Ben Harris in Totnes at Tickelmore Dairy, Devon. It is an unpressed, French-style, blue cheese, wrapped in foil to stop a rind development. It is sold by us at four months old when it is flinty, minerally, and light with a subtle blue taste. This won a Super Gold at the World Cheese Awards in 2022-2023
The perfect pairing:
and a packet of delicious artisan Original Sourdough Crackers, handmade in Devon using organically grown wheat, rye, and oat grains. These are freshly milled creating fresh stone ground flour. The flour and sourdough starter is combined with honey, olive oil, and sea salt and slowly baked to perfection, making sure we get that incredible crack of the crispbread we all love. Our crispbreads aren’t uniform in shape or colour, each batch is individual. They’re great, pilled high on a cheeseboard for people to share and crack to their desired size and shape before enjoying some delicious Artisan cheese.
You will receive five pieces (circa 1.2kg combined) of artisan cheese individually wrapped along with tasting notes for each, all boxed up in recyclable branded Sharpham box and ready to go.
