Description

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, Bavaria | Thermized  

AlpenCheddar is made using a rare and highly experimental technique combining Quicke’s Mature Cheddar with Hofkäserei Krausflagship 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, Bavaria | 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 AlpenCheddar and Alp Blossom are only available in prepacks, for best before dates please refer to the date on the packaging - typically 6 weeks.

Superb!

Nicely presented in an artistic cardboard box with paper straw and well wrapped cheeses. The Alpen selection is delicious especially the floral one. Will definitely be repeating my order in the future. Thank you.

Superb Alpencheddar cheese box

Have tried both the AlpenCheddar and the Alp Blossom cheese and they were both superb. Full of flavour and very good to eat with some biscuits and chutney. Have not sampled the Quicks mature cheddar yet but I know it to be very good from past experience

Delicious - with an interesting story!

I’m so glad I ordered this box. We are already great fans of Quicke’s mature cheddar, loved the flower covered Alp Blossom but the star of this particular show was the AlpenCheddar, a wonderful cross between the other two. I hope we can get more sometime.
