British cider-washed soft cheese

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. Ripened on, it develops deep, savoury, meaty flavour, a bit like those famous continental pongers like Epoisses. However, the cider wash brings an astonishing fermented fruity funk, balancing 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.

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.

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.
