AlpenCheddar Story Box
|ORDER NOW FOR FREE DELIVERY|
The AlpenCheddar Story Box celebrates the fusion of two unique cheesemaking terroirs and centuries of British and German cheesemaking tradition. Inspired by a visit to Albert’s dairy in 2018 and seeing some of Albert’s experimentation with cheese, we came together to produce a new hybrid cheese – AlpenCheddar.
The Story Box takes you on a journey from the Devon countryside to the Bavarian Alps from the cheeses that form the base of AlpenCheddar to the glorious cheese itself.
AlpenCheddar 200g | Hofkäserei Kraus, Barvaria | Thermized
AlpenCheddar is made using a rare and highly experimental technique combining Quicke’s Mature Cheddar with Hofkäserei Kraus’ flagship cheese, Alp Blossom. The Mature Cheddar is added to the curds during the traditional Alpine cheesemaking process. The wheels are pressed into moulds and matured for 3 months in the home village of cheesemaker, Albert Kraus.
A unique texture, sweet aroma and flavour notes starting with hazelnut, moving through sweetness and acidity, before ending with a bright apricot finish. Great with Sandford Orchards' Tremlett's Bitter or their Ice Cider.
Alp Blossom 200g Hofkäserei Kraus, Barvaria | Thermized (V)
Alp Blossom celebrates the diversity of the Alpine flora. Produced and aged at Hofkäserei Kraus, the cheese is then dressed in a mix of organic, dried edible flowers (cornflowers, rose petals, calendula and lavender) & herbs that are grown in the surrounding Alpine meadows.
Nutty, a bit beefy, and with savoury hits from the rind with floral herbal notes. Pair with Hanlons Port Stout.
Mature Cheddar 200g | Quicke's, Devon | Pasteurised
Our signature cheddar, 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 flavour which develops as it reaches the back of the palate. Brothy to grassy to caramel notes. Pair with Sandford Orchards' ciders, such as Devon Red or Devon Mist.
FREE delivery. Please note the AlpenCheddar and Alp Blossom are hand-cut and wrapped to order so please allow 2 working days for delivery. To guarantee delivery of your AlpenCheddar Story Box in time for the weekend please order by 2pm on Wednesday.
Although we do our best to ensure all wedges of cheese are 200g, the weights of the hand-cut and wrapped wedges may vary slightly.
