Aged for around 10 weeks and wrapped in Spruce bark, Vacherin is the Rockstar of seasonal cheeses – being available only from September through to March. It is made with milk from Montbeliarde cows after they have come down from their summer Alpine pastures to the valleys during the winter months where they are fed on hay and kept inside. The milk yield is a lot lower when they are inside which means the fat content of that milk is much higher. The results of this is Vacherin (from the French side of the border) or Vacherin Mont D’Or (from the Swiss side of the border) It is super creamy and sweet with added woody flavour from the Spruce bark it is wrapped in. It has a luxurious silky texture when fully matured and can be spooned right out of it’s box – delicious with a glass of bubbly or Beaujolais Nouveau!
Delivery is not only free, and not only at a set day of your choosing, but also 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 cheesegeek delivery!
Critical cheese questions: from the perfect cheeseboard to misunderstood cheeses
Eating cheese is more than just meal or a delight for us. It's a captivating journey, an indescribable feeling (yes we are referencing Aladdin on a magic carpet). We've sat down with Edward to answer some very important questions.
When it comes to Berkswell cheese, one thing is for sure…it looks like a UFO. Of course, it tastes pretty out of this world too! Its distinct look is all thanks to the fact that it’s moulded in a kitchen colander when being made, instead of being pressed, like most other cheeses.
