British Cheese Week: September 26th – October 2nd. An invitation from some of the most prominent cheese experts and gastronomes in the UK to explore the four corners of the United Cheese Kingdom: England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
The British Isles have an incredible range of cheeses from the most traditional, like Cheddar and Blue Stilton that continue to carry history forward in a most delicious way, to recent innovative inventions, like Sticky Toffee and Thai Curry Cheese with their unique show-stopping flavor profiles.For the past 30 years, Coombe Castle has been on the forefront of keeping British cheese-crafting traditions fresh and alive as well as embracing the spirited modern artistry by developing dazzling new cheese tastes. Each year we look forward to supporting The British Cheese Awards and week-long events to celebrate and honor the individuals and companies that likewise value the ancient art of cheese-making.
Quickes Traditional represents perfectly the present day passion and grace of British cheese-making and Coombe Castle was thrilled to honor them with the Best Export Award for their outstanding Goats Cheddar.
For over 450 years, Quickes Traditional has been making award-winning cheeses on their 1500 acre family farm in the Devon County village of Newton St. Cyres in the South West of England. Their well-tended herd of around 500 cows provides the rich, creamy milk from which each cheese truckle is hand-made and matured by one of Quickes nine skilled cheese-makers.
Quickes Traditional Goats Cheddar is made in the same style as their Traditional Cheddar, using only locally produced goats milk. Great care goes into achieving a perfect balance of goat’s milk with real cheddar flavor from start– up to a 12 month maturation finish.
Congratulations to Quickes Traditional and all the award winners at this year’s event. We hope everyone will take part in British Cheese Week and enjoy some of what makes Britain so Great.
