IMAGE 1- Cheshire England’s oldest cheese, Cheshire is a dense semi hard cheese with a moist but crumbly texture. Its mild and salty taste means that Cheshire has survived the test of time and continues to be a hugely popular cheese. / IMAGE 2- Double Gloucester Orange in colour, Double Gloucester has a firm body, although not as firm as a Cheddar. Its close and creamy texture and mellow flavour result in a delicious cheese, with a zesty tang on the finish. / IMAGE 3- Lancashire Crumbly by nature, Lancashire is a mild cheese with a fresh milky, moist finish and slightly tangy flavour. / IMAGE 4- Red Leicester Red Leicester is famous for its distinctive deep red colour which comes from the addition of annatto to the cheese. Typically aged for between 3 and 6 months, Red Leicester’s nutty taste and firm texture make it one of our most loved cheeses. / IMAGE 5- Sage Derby Sage Derby is thought to date back to the 17th century when cheese makers began adding sage to cheddar because of its health benefits. It is similar in taste to a mild cheddar but when speckled with the aromatic herb sage, the cheese takes on a very different flavour. / IMAGE 6- Wensleydale Originating from North Yorkshire, Wensleydale is considered a British classic. It is thought that the cheese dates back to the Middle Ages, being introduced in Britain by Cistercian monks who settled in the town of Wensleydale. This ancient cheese was originally known as a blue-veined cheese, but is now sold more widely in its unveined form. Wensleydale is typically aged for 3-4 months, and has a crumbly texture. It is a mild cheese with a fresh, clean flavour and a honeyed after-taste.
