THE STORY

All about Coombe Castle – Adventures in Dairy

At Coombe Castle we have been exporting our exceptional range of cheddars, regionals, blends and blues for over 30 years.

The Coombe Castle range has something for everyone, be it a classic farmhouse cheddar, or one of our more exotic blended cheeses.  We travel the globe taking flavours and inspiration from everywhere we go. Coombe Castle are proud to present our range of the finest British cheeses.

Cheddar is possibly the most consumed cheese in the world and Coombe Castle supply a great range of some of the finest Cheddar produced, from authentic Farmhouse Cheddar, delicious creamy mild cheddar to full-bodied mature cheddar.

Cheddar originated from Somerset, England, around the late 12th century and it took its name from the gorge or caves in the town of Cheddar. Today, cheddar cheese is not only made in Somerset, but all over the world.

The term cheddar cheese is widely used and has no Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) accreditation. However, Cheddars made from locally sourced milk to traditional methods in the 4 cheddar-making counties of England, can be granted this prestigious accolade in order to protect their authenticity and geographical location.

Blue cheese is a general classification of cheeses that have had cultures of the mold Penicillium added so that the final product is spotted or veined throughout with blue, or blue-grey mold and carries a distinct smell.

Coombe Castle are pleased to supply two distinct blue cheeses Stilton and Shropshire Blue.

Blue Stilton is world renowned as the King of Cheese. A unique appearance with magical blue veins radiating from the centre and unique flavour makes it a great cheese for special occasions and livening up every day dishes.

Shropshire Blue is made in a similar way to Stilton, a soft cheese with a sharp, strong flavour and a slightly tangy aroma. It is slightly sour but sharper than Stilton and generally creamier.

There are over 700 named cheese produced in the UK, a cheese for every occasion.

British cheeses have great complexity of flavour and cheese characteristics. British cheesemakers take a huge pride in cheese manufacturing which drives product quality.

From Lancashire to Gloucester, Britain’s counties have a long tradition of cheese making. Coombe castle are delighted to present a range of some of the finest regional cheeses, each with its own distinct flavours and characteristics.
