Taste this washed-rind cheese

Mini Maida Vale is a semi-soft, washed rind cheese which is made from Channel Island cows' milk and washed with Soundwave IPA from Siren Craft Brewery, who are situated just a few miles from the dairy. The IPA beer helps to promote a pungent, tangy flavour in the cheese whilst maintaining a buttery texture. It is a fully-fledged British cheese at its finest.

Village Maid Dairy has been a pioneer in the British cheese industry for decades, founded by Anne Wigmore (a former dairy scientist) and her husband Andy Wigmore in the 1980s. In 2017 their son Jake and his partner Kayleigh joined the business and set about creating a new cheese – Maida Vale. This soft, washed rind cheese is produced using Guernsey cows' milk from the biodynamic Heckfield Park Farm, located less than two miles away from the dairy and then washed in a craft IPA. Over lockdown we commissioned Jake and his team to create a ‘baby’ version of this delicious cheese exclusively for our Cheese Club. Due to its popularity, we have added the Mini Maida Vale as a limited-edition cheese to our website.
