Truly a cheese that captures the terroir of where it is made in Cumbria, St James is made on a very small scale by Martin Gott on Holker Farm who makes his own starter cultures. The cheeses are washed individually and turned in brine three times a week which gives its distinctive orange-yellow rind. The resulting flavours are deep and complex, and quite simply, blow us away. Don't be worried if your cheese doesn't look exactly like this when you receive it, St James is incredibly seasonal and can vary from softer with a meatier flavour to a little firmer and slightly creamier (drop us a line if you want to know how the latest batches are tasting). Well done Gott & Co.
