Artisan Cheese Awards at Melton Mowbray 2021


The Artisan Cheese Awards were held last weekend at the annual Melton Mowbray Cheese Fair. There are Supreme Champion cheeses picked along with lots of different classes and each class has Class Winners and Highly Commended Cheeses.

Then there are Gold, Silver and Bronze Awards. We have had a read through all the winners, and collate together all of the cheeses we stock permanently or that we get in now-and-again for your information. 

The big winner on the day was Kingstone Dairy with it's "lockdown" cheese Ashcombe - a semi-soft washed rind made to a Morbier recipe. Not only did it win Supreme Champion ie the best cheese currently being made in Britain it also won, wait for it.....Best English Cheese, Best New Cheese, Best Farmhouse Cheese and Best Washed Rind Cheese. Phew!
