A fascinating British interpretation of brie (loosely speaking), this is made by the same producers of the Camembert-style 'Waterloo'. Made from sheep's milk, Wigmore is milkier, butter-rich, and rather than earthy, it has a soft creaminess that's balanced by a lovely fruity-sweet fermented aroma. Finally, there's the perfectly smooth finish, with none of the bitterness you get from a Brie or Camembert. It allows some nutty caramel flavours to come into the mix, which is totally unexpected from a bloomy rind cheese like this. A really lovely, relatively mild cheese for those wanting something more subtle and relaxed compared to the more robust flavours that are usually associated with a Brie or Camembert. This is cheese-making at its most masterful.

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
