Brightwell Ash is a ripened goats’ cheese round aged up to 21 days with a rich, creamy texture and a flavour with light hazlenut and citrus notes which deepen with age. The cheese has a smooth, creamy paste and an ash and yeast based rind which also develops blue, grey and white moulds during maturation. The ash applied to cheese once came directly from a fire, but is now mainly made from salt and vegetable ash (vegetables that are dried and turned into ash). The ash is sterile, odorless and tasteless. Used on the outside of a cheese, ash helps form a thin rind. It is also an alkaline substance that neutralizes acidity and aids in the ripening process.
