Most of the time you may find that you read the name of the cheese and find it very hard to link it to what you're eating. This is simply not the case with Northern Blue. It sounds tough...and it is tough. Made with hard-as-nails northern cows, it packs a serious punch (thanks to a stronger strain of Penicillium Roquefort). To balance the extra strength, there is still a creaminess and sweetness to it...think of it as the softer side to Phil Mitchell (there's one there, we know it).

Shepherd's Purse have blues running through their veins, and this is another winner. Literally. It unsurprisingly scooped a Silver Medal winner at the 2019 World Cheese Awards in Bergamo.

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.
