Traditional in style but only brought to us by makers Cashel in 2017, Shepherd’s Store has already picked up a mind-blowing 7 awards. We’re suckers for a seasonal cheese with this semi-hard beauty only being made between February and September and then aged for a minimum of six months. It strikes the perfect balance across the board: firm yet delicately creamy; full yet without an overly strong flavour accompanied with a mix of savoury and sweet notes. Fudge, caramel, butter are all in play.

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.

Meet the Maker

From their Tipperary farm in 1984, The Grubb family broke new ground by creating Cashel Blue, the FIRST blue cheese to be produced in Ireland! Using milk from local herds, they've expanded their range of award winning cheese and now even make a sheep's milk blue.
