Award-Winning British Cheese!
Cullum is an exclusive cheese to our online shop and cheese counters. A bright and juicy ewes' milk cheese with well-balanced savoury notes and a subtle sweetness. The texture is supple and moreish and delicious with a drizzle of honey.
Our British cheese ‘Cullum’ was first developed by cheesemaker Martin Gott and Paxton & Whitfield's managing director James Rutter in 2022. Martin and his team make the cheese at Holker Farm in the Lake District in summer when the milk production is high and transfer it to Paxton & Whitfield at two weeks old where the maturation work begins.
Jazz Reeves, Paxton’s quality manager, and her team of cheesemongers then mature Cullum; regularly brushing down the moulds and turning the cheeses twice a week.
Jazz explains: “We have been in constant contact with the cheesemaker Martin Gott during the maturation of this batch to refine the recipe and process. We assess the cheese organoleptically every week and we are delighted to release this batch which is deliciously bright and juicy. There is a fruitiness which is well balanced by savoury notes, with a subtle sweetness coming from the ewes’ milk. The texture is butter and smooth in the mouth, and very moreish.”
We selected the name as a nod to the original founder of 'Paxton & Whitfield' - Stephen Cullum who first established his cheese stall in Aldwych Market in 1742.
