The Ultimate Cheese Advent Calendar Experience

Our 2022 Artisan Advent Cheese Calendar is the ultimate foodie advent calendar to bring a guaranteed smile to the face of cheese lovers on 24 days this December with free UK* delivery!

We were overwhelmed by the incredible reviews from customers who loved their Paxton’s cheese advent calendar experience last Christmas. We’re celebrating our 225th birthday as a cheesemonger in 2022, so this year’s calendar will contain a taste of some of the latest cheeses from our brand-new maturation rooms, as well as classic historic, artisan cheeses. AND almost half of the cheeses in this 2022 edition will be new to the calendar, so there's something fresh to discover if you were one of the lucky ones to experience the sell-out calendar last year!

Recipients will receive three fresh deliveries of eight hand-cut and hand-wrapped, advent artisan cheese boxes in December. The first advent parcel will be delivered on 30th November, followed by the second on 7th December and the final advent parcel on 15th December. The cheese parcels are packaged with 100% sheep’s wool insulation and reusable icepacks and sent on an overnight, carbon-neutral delivery service for an impressive, fresh arrival.

Our cheesemongers have carefully selected 24 artisan cheeses for a delicious tasting journey - one cheese per day to savour in the run up to Christmas Day. An immersive cheese tasting and learning experience – each individually numbered advent box contains a factsheet with more information about the cheese, its maker and pairing or recipe ideas.

Each Paxton & Whitfield advent box is beautifully presented and fully recyclable, with shredded paper inside and a 75g cut of cheese, hand-wrapped in Paxton & Whitfield wax paper. We’ve selected 75g pieces as the perfect daily amount to enjoy yourself, but also a large enough taster to share if you want to!

This carefully curated cheese advent calendar will feature festive classics such as Gruyere and Stilton, as well as more unusual cheeses from artisan British and European cheesemakers.

Available in a strictly limited edition of 350 Advent Calendars. Order yours today to secure availability. 

Please note. Our cheese advent calendar is available for home delivery only and is not available for click & collect from our shops. 

"The packaging is simple and elegant, with a wreath and number printed on a black background. Each of the cheeses is individually wrapped in wax paper with some background on the style and maker, alongside tasting notes and pairing suggestions, inside the lid. It feels luxurious, like a really, really fabulous friend has shipped you some favourite cheeses they selected from the deli, and it reflects the quality of what’s inside." Ella Buchan, The Independent. Read the full review from The Independent Online"

“An absolute delight to come down every morning to open another box of cheese and read the descriptions and paring advice. Thoroughly enjoyable and also educational. We loved it!! ”

A labour of love in putting these cheese boxes together. There were generous portions of each day's cheese, easily enough for two people. A very good mix of different types of cheese, spread out over the 24 days. It was hard not to peek into the next day's box to see what was coming!! And how have I got through life without trying Schneblehorn? a definite new favourite!! Thank you Paxton and Whitfield, you've hit a new high!

This Cheese Advent is exceptional, delivery perfectly timed, tasting notes informative and fun, the cheese portion is just the right amount to ensure daily enjoyment and the cheeses are phenomenal, varied and flavorsome - Overall highly recommended, I will be having one every year.
