Double the Gloucester, double the fun. This cheese is less acidic and has a smoother texture than it's counterpart, Appleby's Cheshire. For all our talk of being modern, a large part of cheesegeek relies on traditional methods and hand-me-down recipes such as this clothbound cheese. A 300 year old recipe, revived by the Appleby family in 1986, when we taste this double gloucester, we're reminded of warm buttered toast with a tangy fruity finish.

You can select delivery dates up until 23rd Christmas. During Christmas week your cheese delivery could arrive +/- 2 days outside of your preferred delivery date. Your cheese will always be cut and wrapped the day it is sent out and you will get a delivery notification when your cheese is prepped, with tracking information when your cheese is on it's way.

Delivery is FREE and it comes in a climate control box (the only in the industry) that comes with a 48 hour freshness guarantee. If that wasn't enough, we also add an insert that will talk you through the info on the cheeses, tasting notes and a scorecard to help you make the very most of your festive cheesegeek delivery.
