We’ve searched all corners of the United Kingdom, to select the very best locally-crafted cheeses and accompaniments for this veddy British gift set. Think the finest English cheddars and savory Scottish chutneys, paired with classic crackers from the historic city of Bath. We’ve even completed the set with an igourmet-branded cutting board and an assortment of markers—to help you tell your Quicke's Devonshire Red from your Long Clawson Royal Blue Stilton DOP. Commonwealth-appreciating cheese-lovers will be chuffed to bits.
Quicke’s Devonshire Red: Handcrafted using milk from Quicke’s grass-fed cows, clothbound and naturally matured on their 500-year-old farm in Devon. This vibrant, full-flavored cheese is their distinctive take on a classic Red Leicester, with a crumbly texture, fresh, nutty flavors and a lemony creaminess.
Coombe Castle Wensleydale & Cranberries: Just like Champagne hails from a specific place, the only true Wensleydale cheese comes from cows that graze the sweet limestone pastures on farms in Upper Wensleydale, England. This hyper-specific terroir lends the firm and crumbly cheese its nutty buttermilk flavor with grassy notes and a honey aftertaste, which is wonderfully complemented by the addition of fresh and tart cranberries.
Long Clawson Royal Blue Stilton DOP: Blue Stilton is one of a handful of British cheeses granted the status of a "protected designation origin" (PDO) by the European Commission. Which means that only cheese produced in the counties of Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire and made according to a strict code may be called Stilton. Made by the Long Clawson dairy, this pungent and bold cheese boasts signature light blue veining, and pairs nicely with fresh fruit like berries, figs, apples, grapes, and pears.
Snowdonia Cheese Company: This North Wales company is known for their innovative and award-winning mature cheddar. It has a melt-in-your-mouth quality that mimics the snow-capped peaks of Snowdonia, and comes flavored with everything from garden herbs to crushed red pepper to stem ginger to port.
Somerdale Il Truffelino Cheddar: Classic English Cheddar is taken to the next level with the luxurious addition of musky black summer truffle. Crafted from unpasteurized cow’s milk, imported from the UK and dramatically wrapped in black wax, it makes a decadent addition to a rustic Ploughman's lunch, or can be used to add adult savor to grilled cheese or mac 'n' cheese.
Mrs. Bridges Ploughman’s Chutney: This family-run Scottish company uses a time-honored, slow-boiling, open-pan method of making their preserves in copper bottom pans. This sweet and tart chutney features a blend of garden vegetables, orchard apples, brown sugar, onions, and malt vinegar, and is a traditional accompaniment to the Ploughman's lunch—cold meats, cheese, pickles and pate, enjoyed with bread.
Bath Squares by The Fine Cheese Co.: These large, crispy biscuits were created by a doctor in the 1750's, for patients who traveled to historic Bath, England, to visit the natural thermal spa.
