Say Raclette and your mind drifts to the alps. It’s been a long day on the slopes, you can’t feel your toes...then you remember the whole reason you came skiing. The glorious melted cheese is peppered with potatoes, cornichons, and charcuterie. Ogleshield is our British equivalent and the West Country's answer to raclette. Made by Montgomery’s (yes, the cheddar guys) it's aromatic with a real depth of flavour - we get hints of onion soup, maybe even chicken gravy. All we know for sure is, it melts like a dream. No arguments, it’s a definite winter warmer (and no need to go skiing to try it).

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.

During checkout, you will be able to select your preferred delivery date. This is great if you're buying as a gift or are organising your cheese in advance. The cheese will be packed in chilled, insulated boxes (that look great!) and will always be prepared on the day it is dispatched. A few other handy pointers:

- We use DHL nationwide and Packfleet within the M25

- Please use the delivery date you have selected as a guide rather than a guarantee.

- Your cheese will arrive in the best condition. It will have been prepared freshly and will not have been with our courier beyond our maximum of 48hrs

- You will receive delivery notifications for when your order is dispatched that mean you can track when it’s in transit

If you aren’t in for your delivery, this won’t matter. Our couriers will leave your cheese in you designated safe place in our climate controlled packaging.

We’re a small business working with an (incredible) perishable product. For advice on delivery or any cheesy questions, get in touch via the live chat or on hello@thecheesegeek.com

Meet the Maker

Since 1911, the Montgomery family have been lovingly crafting their traditional farmhouse cheddar from their farm in Somerset. The team use raw milk and pint starter to create their eponymous cheddar as well as Jersey milk to make their raclette style cheese Ogleshield.
