Holbrook is a brand new cheese from 2020, born about as the result of Martin and Nicola from St James acquiring extra land and goats for their Lake District farm. Named after the famed cheesemaker, Mary Holbrook, this cheese is a seasonal raw milk goat's cheese with prominent fruity, boozy notes and lingering burnt grass flavours. Grind with the rind and you have an added umami complexity. A great new cheese with a lovely story, the extra richness in flavour is developed from the goats only being milked once a day, with the warm milk going straight into the cheese vat. Holbrook is a Spring cheese that you're going to want to try.

Meet the Maker

After training with a host of dairy royalty including Mary Holbrook, Martin Gott established St James in 2006. On his Cumbria farm, Martin produces raw-milk sheep's cheese from his herd of Laucane ewes with a homemade starter culture which leads to a fantastic variation.
