one of the finest British Cheeses, Mrs Appleby’s Cheshire is the only traditional handmade Cheshire cheese left. Each cheese is cloth wrapped and matured for a maximum of 6 months. The red colour of the cheese is produced by the addition of annatto, a natural vegetable extract.
Mrs Appleby herself died in 2008 aged 88, leaving behind a legacy of promoting and reviving traditional farmhouse cheesemaking. Her family continue the tradition of making cheese at Hawkstone farm.
Mrs Applebey’s Cheshire is moist and buttery, lightly crumbly with an aftertaste which leaves you wanting more.
Made with unpasteurised milk and vegetarian rennet.
