  • About Allerdale

    This is a semi-hard goats cheese, with a moist, friable texture and a clean, sweet almondy flavour.

    The cheese is handmade in open vats, pressed and then bound in cloth and matured for up to 5 months. If matured for longer, the cheese will develop a hard crumbly texture and a sweeter nutty finish.
