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.

A modern twist on your cheese and wine hamper

Original, classic, extraordinary. Words we would use describe The Elton cheese and fine wine box, our modern twist on a traditional cheese and wine hamper. Nothing beats sitting by a cosy fireplace enjoying a delicious glass of vino and a slab of cheese and we've provided the tasting notes so you can run your own cheese and wine night at home. 

There is nothing wrong with going to bed with cheese. People should be very free with cheese, they shouldn't draw the line at goats.

Elton John, ish

The Perfect Pairings

St Helena with Pouilly Fume

A British St Nectaire style cheese paired with a refined Sauvignon Blanc

More

Made with raw Montbeliarde cow's milk, travelling mere metres from milking parlour to VAT, this is a brand new cheese, made in the style of a St Nectaire. It has that absolutely critical 'squidge' that any great St Nectaire should have, milky slightly nutty sweetness, and then a burst of earthiness from the rind.

Paired with Pouilly Fume, this gives a cosy and elegant pairing. Pouilly Fume is a 2018 vintage white from Loire, 100% Sauvignon Blanc.

Mrs Kirkham's Lancashire & Pacherenc-du-Vic-Bilh

A phenomenal Lancashire paired with a unique peachy white wine.

More

Mrs Kirkham's, now made by Graham Kirkham, is the cheese equivalent of a critically endangered species. Its texture is utterly unique, similar to the base of a cheesecake, and simultaneously carries a combination of sharp creme fraiche and rich butter.

Paired with Pacherenc-du-Vic-Bilh,  this gives tropical, almost grapefruit flavours. Pacherenc-du-Vic-Bilh is a 2017 Vintage from Sud-Ouest, 80% Petit Courbu and 20% Manseng.

Back

Bath Blue and Carmènère

A beautifully crafted blue with a rich and robust red.

More

Supreme Champion at the 2014 World Cheese Awards, this Stilton-style cheese shows what value can be added by manual cheesemaking. Made on a small scale, with hand-ladled curds, every cheese is pierced by hand so the 7 cheesemakers can feel the moisture and adapt the piercing accordingly for every individual cheese. Whilst it hits all the classic Stilton notes, some sharp saltiness, balanced by a richness, what stands out is the long, lingering toasted hazelnut melted butter on toast finish

Matched with Carmènère this results in a comforting pairing to finish. Carmènère is a 2019 vintage from Valle de Colchagua, 100% Carmènère.

A very well received birthday gift

I sent this to my brother in law for a special birthday - he was delighted. He is a bit of a wine expert, so enjoyed the concept of having tasting notes for both cheese and wine
