Pecorino DOP (200g)
This Pecorino is from Sardinia with milk from a special Sardinian breed of sheep. It’s aged for three months and has the lovely nutty flavour you’d expect from a hard ewe’s milk cheese with a slight tartness at the end. It’s not to be confused with a Pecorino Romano which is much saltier and stronger.
Try it with: Delicious used in a pesto or drizzled with honey.

Brewer's Gold, The Little Milk Company (150g)
Organic Cashel Blue, The Little Milk Company (125g)
Wrapped in its iconic gold foil, Cashel Blue is a creamy blue, mild and crowd-pleasing (so even those on the fence about blue cheese tend to like it). It has been described by some folks here as “the best cheese they’ve ever eaten”. It’s made by following the original Cashel Blue® recipe which was created in 1984 by husband and wife cheesemakers Louis and Jane Grubb. The organic milk for this blue comes from a single herd of cows based in the hinterland of Fethard, some 15 km from the churning room. Milked only once a day, the pasteurised milk is particularly rich, sweet and creamy. Give it a taste yourself and see if you agree.
Try it with... A craft beer, like our organic Goldeneye Beer from Black Isle Brewery.
