The South Devon Cheese & Honey Medley


The South Devon Cheese & Honey Medley

Goats’ cheese and honey are a well-known and delicious flavour pairing.

But how about a honey drink too?

When we discovered it will be World Mead Day on 6 August, we thought we’d give all three a try. We were bowled over. So, we are sharing it with you!

We approached small, award-winning producers, all working within a few miles of Sharpham; Stone’s Honey from Ivybridge and Moonhoney Mead of Kingsbridge.

Stone’s Honey drizzled over Sharpham Ticklemore squidged onto a chunk of fresh sourdough or a baked cracker was heavenly. When we tasted both with a chilled glass of thoroughly-modern Moonhoney mead we knew we had a winner on our hands.

And that got us thinking. How about a honey-based cocktail with your summer cheeseboard? Another artisan producer, Devon Rum in Salcombe, make a fabulous Honey Spiced Rum and we’re adding a cheeky miniature and their little booklet of cocktail recipes to the box – try their Devon Meadow recipe, crisp, clean and summery.

Everything in the Cheese and Honey Medley is award-winning and hand-crafted. We’ve teamed up with small, young businesses in South Devon, with two exceptions – to give you another option on your cheeseboard we’ve added a favourite all the way from mid-Devon, a wedge of rich, buttery Mature Clothbound Cheddar from Quickes; and some sourdough crackers from our old friends at Peter’s Yard.
