Christmas. The most wonderful time of the year. It’s a time for people to pause and spend time with those who matter the most. Presents will bring joy, shared food will bring happiness and memories will be made. 

The Christmas is the selection that brings people together. There’s epic, artisan cheese for everyone from Grandad to Grandkids. There’s also the conversation it brings, the debate over favourites, the immediate sense of joy experienced with each mouthful. 

The selection, curated by cheese geek Founder and judge at The World Cheese Awards, features five classic cheeses: Witheridge, Old Road Wensleydale, Pitchfork, Tunworth and Stichelton. All you need to do is select how many people there are to feed and we’ll do the rest. It’s entertaining made easy.

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

The Christmas line up


Witheridge has the strength of a mature cheddar, but the sweetness and umami notes of an Alpine style.


Witheridge is the first cheese in the UK that is aged in hay. It is fabulously sweet with a supple and creamy texture, a great combination of an Alpine cheese crossed with a mature cheddar.


Old Roan Wensleydale

Traditional, handmade, raw milk Wensleydale made by husband & wife team Sam and Ben at Curlew Dairy


Unlike block Wensleydale, the manual, handmade, small batch nature of this traditional clothbound Wensleydale results in so much more complexity. It has the tell tale bite in the centre, but carries an incredible stoney, mineral earthiness closer to the rind, where you also start getting the most wonderful breakdown in the cheese. There are more hidden themes here than The Matrix, and it is a great nod to traditional cheesemaking



Pitchfork won 4th best cheese in the World in 2020, and Best British cheese! There really is none of that supple rubbery chewiness you get with a supermarket cheddar.


The newest of only 4 traditional, raw milk Somerset cheddars, Pitchfork joins great company alongside Keens, Montgomerys and Westcombe. In our view, it more than holds its own. It has incredible complexity and balance, one of the trademarks of a great cheddar. You'll find a farmy-like tang, a buttery undercoat with the hallmark of a proper, Clothbound cheddar- a crumbly, earthy breakdown in the mouth.



Everyone knows camembert, and pretty much everyone loves it too. Tunworth is a camembert-style cheese, but better.


Hampshire Cheese's (distinctly British!) have taken on a classic that is rich, creamy, buttery and smooth, but with a complexity that is a pleasant cabbage-style bitterness. It is finished with a subtle earthy and mushroomy aromas that just fills your mouth. We love it, and we're sure you will too!



Stichelton is an English blue cheese made in Nottinghamshire by Joe Schneider using organic, unpasteurised milk from his Friesian-Holstein cows.


It is made using a traditional recipe of Britain's most famous blue cheese but differs as it is made with raw milk and natural rennet. His rusty coloured rind has a slightly spicy tang, and has a firm texture which is broken by the blue-green mould veins that run throughout. The flavour is nutty, a little sweet and slightly toasted, with a creamy finish. A delight on any cheeseboard – this is a cheese with a great back story!
