Taste 2022 Award-Winning Ashcombe Cheese

Wow! This beautiful, British artisan cheese was crowned 'Best New Cheese', 'Best Farmhouse Cheese', 'Best English Cheese', 'Best Washed Rind Cheese' AND 'Overall Supreme Champion' at the 2021 Melton Artisan Cheese Fair and the Supreme Champion winner at The British Cheese Awards 2022.

Ashcombe is a delicious Morbier style cheese, with a sweet nuttiness and a really satisfying, toothsome texture. The rind is meaty and savoury, while the paste has aromas of warm milk and hay. The flavours are comforting and rich, reminding us of melted butter and fresh hazelnuts.

The cheese is carefully washed in a special brine solution to develop its stunning bright terracotta rind and a striking line of wood ash runs through the centre of the cheese to make an impressive statement on your cheeseboard.
