About

Tunworth is a handmade pasteurised cheese. It has a delicate, thick rind with a rich, creamy yellow interior that gently oozes but doesn't run away. Whilst there is a slight bite to the rind, the centre melts in the mouth and the two textures complement each other well. The aroma of the cheese is nutty and reminiscent of mushrooms, while the flavour is rich and sweet with some of the fruity, yet earthy notes you would expect from a good Camembert.

Hampshire Cheeses was founded in 2004 when Julie Cheyney and Stacey Hedges decided to produce a cheese, Tunworth, using high quality milk from a friend who had a herd of Ayrshire cows. This small herd graze on the Hampshire Downs and are grass-fed all year.
