Northumberland Cheese Board

Northumberland Cheese Board

Taste the best of Northumberland with this beautiful selection of our handmade cheeses...

Nettle 300g

Northumberland Nettle is one of our bestselling cheeses, and for good reason. Made with cows' milk from the Blagdon Estate, this is delicious Northumberland Original recipe, with the addition of real nettles. For those who have not tried it, nettles may seem like a perculiar addition to cheese, but in actual fact, nettles can be used to coagulate milk in place of rennet! We make our cheese with vegetarian rennet, so the nettles are not really functional... but you could say it was the inspiration. We actually find the addition of nettles encourages the beautiful creaminess of the Gouda-influenced cheese. We promise the nettles won't sting you! This cheese is matured for 3 months which allows the subtle flavour to develop, and it gives the cheese a fantastic, well-rounded maturity which doesn't overpower the gentle taste experience.

Oak-smoked 300g

Our Northumberland Oak-smoked is an extremely popular award-winning cheese, and with good reason. Made with cows' milk from the Blagdon Estate, it is our delicious Original recipe cheese, which is then cold-smoked over wood chippings for 12 hours, to develop a bronzed outer core and a beautifully smoky taste. Our Oak-smoked cheese is the real deal; there is absolutely nothing artifical in this flavour. Once the cheese has been smoked for 12 hours, it is then matured for 3 months to deepen the flavour. It won Silver at the International Cheese Awards this year (2019). We would love to smoke it locally, and we did experiment with having our cheese smoked in Craster. Unfortunately, the cheese came back tasting of kippers...! So we had to look again, and we chose MacKenzies Smokehouse in Preston; their smoking expertise speaks for itself in this stunning cheese.

Reiver 300g

Reiver is an award-winning mould-ripened cow's milk cheese. With the robust aroma of autumn leaves, this cheese has a complexity of flavour that demands a sophisticated palate, and is one to savour as it develops towards a lingering finish. The cheese is hard-pressed for a close texture, and it is cellar-ripened for 3 months for a pleasing depth; it provides another dimension for the cheese board. Reiver is also popular with the awards. Reiver is also our founder's favourite cheese... so that speaks volumes we think!

Brinkburn 300g

In 2000 we were invited to cater Brinkburn Music Festival at Brinkburn Priory, which was a prestigious event attracting many visitors to Northumberland. For such a special occasion we decided to create a new cheese. Based on the same recipe as our Elsdon, our original goats' milk cheese, Brinkburn was matured in cellar conditions for 3 months to create a deeper and richer flavour. After the festival Brinkburn cheese was so popular we added it to our range and it is still one of the best-loved Northumberland Cheeses. Brinkburn is our most award-winning cheese; you can see its accolades here, but we will mention that it won Gold at the International Cheese Awards in Nantwich 2019, wow! It also won a Silver Award at the South West Cheese Awards this year.Brinkburn is a pasteurised and vegetarian award-winning goats' cheese. Mould-ripened, and velvety soft on the palate, it is light-textured and pleasingly sweet, with notes of coconut. It is matured for approximately 3 months. This international prize-winner is queen of the cheeses. Brinkburn is a delicate goats' cheese, and a chutney would potentially overwhelmed the flavour. Try it on an oatcake, with just some grapes for companions. All of our cheeses are pasteurised and vegetarian. They are suitable for pregnant women. 

All of these cheeses are pasteurised and vegetarian. This cheese board has a 2-week shelf life.

Ordered as a Christmas gift and delivered in very good time on Dec 22 thereby exceeding the 'estimated' delivery date of Dec 27. Cheeses tasted so far are excellent and quantity more than expected. Thank you
