You get:

 

  • Lyburn Old Winchester approximately 250g approx
  • Tunworth Hampshire Camembert 250g
  • Isle of Wight Blue 180g
  • New Forest Rosary Goat's Garlic & Herb 100g

 

Old Winchester - hard, complex and crystalline - reminiscent of an old gouda with a lovely nuttiness. Made by Lyburn Cheese near Salisbury. (17 cheese miles from Lymington)

 

  • Try matching Old Winchester with an English sparkling wine or a crisp white wine.  Brown or amber ales also pair well, as does a glass of Speyside of Highland Scotch.

 

Tunworth - Hampshire's very British, Camembert – a soft, white-rinded cheese wonderfully reminiscent of its French cousin. soft, thin and wrinkled rind, a rich and earthy mushroom fragrance, and a long-lasting sweet and nutty flavour. (45 cheese miles from Lymington)

 

  • Try matching Tunworth with sparkling wine, a big Italian red or cider.

 

Isle of Wight Blue was first made in 2006 and since then has gone on to win multiple awards. It is a naturally rinded soft cheese with an initially mild blue flavour. However, as the cheese matures, it packs much more of a punch. The cheese is covered with beautiful green, blue and grey moulds which add to the character of the cheese, both in flavour and appearance and a whole little cheese looks great on a cheeseboard. Once opened, the cheese is still very pleasing to the eye, with the sporadic blue patches on the creamy, yellow cheese working well together. This is a cheese that really benefits from some time out of the fridge so allow at least an hour at room temperature before eating. (19 cheese miles from Lymington)

 

  • A nice porter or stout is a great accompaniment for this cheese but on some occasions we also like a slightly sweet wine.

 

Rosary Goat's Button -  Rosary garlic and herb is a fresh, soft goats cheese with garlic and a delicate coating of parsley.It is faintly acidic and has a gorgeous creamy texture. (17 cheese miles from Lymington) 

 

  • Try pairing Rosary goat's cheese with a glass of Scotch or a belgian beer - wine lovers match with a sauvignon blanc or a clean, crisp, Provencal style rosé.
