  • About Applebys Cheshire

    A moist and crumbly hard cheese made with unpasteurised and unadulterated cows milk, from the Appleby’s dairy herd, and a vegetarian rennet.
    The Appleby family work closely with Garry Gray, a dedicated artisan cheesemaker, who is highly experienced and skilled in the art of cheesemaking, to create this Cheshire of distinction.
    Appleby’s Cheshire goes particularly well with fruit cake, figs or dates, as the acidity complements the sweetness of the fruit.

Flavour notes:

Clean & Zesty on the tongue followed by a rich mouth watering finish.
