Village Maid are cheesemakers that just know what they are doing. They make the wonderful Wigmore, Waterloo, and Spenwood. Winner of best cows milk cheese at the recent Artisan Cheese Awards, Maida Vale is made in a similar style to Waterloo, except it is washed during maturation in IPA. So whilst the cheese is inherently buttery, creamy, and rich on account of using Jersey cows (notoriously creamy milk), the IPA brings into the mix a nice little tangy punchy kick that just keeps you pondering. As with all cheeses like this, the majority of that kick will come from the rind, so we recommend you compare the taste of the centre cheese vs the rind...quite a difference!

Delivery is not only free, and not only at a set day of your choosing, but also 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 cheesegeek delivery!
