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

The cheesegeek ‘GENESIS’ range has been developed to represent a style and quality of cheesemaking that mirrors the values of ourselves as a business, and what we believe is the future of the cheese industry.

The cheeses are made exclusively for us, and represent modern interpretations of classic styles of cheese, hand-crafted by the finest British cheesemakers. 

All the milk used to make these cheeses is fully traceable, and locally sourced, so not only are they some of the highest quality cheeses you will have tasted, the provenance and story behind the cheeses is also compelling. They truly tell the story of the land where they’ve been crafted.

We have designed these four cheeses to taste wonderful individually, but also as a collection...The Genesis is a perfect way to try them all!



A scintillating 9-month aged gouda style cheese.


Exhibits both diminishing hints of youth, whilst also embracing some of the trademarks of ageing.

With this dichotomy comes wonderfully balanced complexity, ranging from a supple, springy sweet butteriness, to slightly more weathered earthiness and richness. 

We think this manifests in the flavour of liberally buttered jacket potato skins. The finish is a joy to behold, long, sweet and delightful.



A gangbusting soft, Brie-style cheese fit for any cheeseboard


It brings everything you would want and expect from a Brie-style cheese, but in the most elegant and refined way possible. Intense creaminess of course, wild garlic leaves, a damp earthiness and the most subtle, contrasting fruity citrus snap running through the middle, holding everything together. 

Ripened to perfection, EASTWOOD will have wonderful breakdown inside the rind, and a chalky centre around an inch in thickness.



An unforgettable soft cheese, washed in cider


A testament to British cheesemaking, and a nod to continental cheesemaking, this is a washed rind cheese destined for great things. When slightly younger, the flavours are fresher and crisper, with just a hint of fruitiness. But ripened on, it develops deep, savoury, meaty flavours reminiscent of the classic French and Belgian monastic cheeses. However, the cider wash brings an astonishing fermented fruity funk, that balances the savoury flavours perfectly, all playing out amidst the most tantalising creamy, decadent, luxurious texture. 

A modern take on history, and a cheese for the ages.



A unique, mesmeric blue cheese


The texture of HENDRIX is the first thing that hits you, semi-soft, forgiving, silky and melt-in-the-mouth. It is the blue cheese equivalent of eating a Galaxy chocolate bar, and so unusual in the world of blue cheese. This is the starting point for what is both an incredibly accessible and balanced blue cheese, but also complex and characterful. It carries an unmistakable sea saltiness and minerality, reflecting its provenance by the west coast of Wales, which balances the richness of the milk perfectly.
