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.

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.

The week before Christmas is our (and our courier’s) busiest time of the year. Please use the delivery date you have selected as a guide rather than a guarantee. We will ensure that:

- Your delivery will arrive within 2 days of your preferred date (either before or after)

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

- Your cheese will be perfect for Christmas (whether for yourself or a gift)

- 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

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.
