We have chosen four of our favourite and the best Scottish farmhouse cheeses currently being produced to create a decadent Burns Night Supper cheeseboard for you.
You will receive approximately 400g of cheese enough to feed 4 - 6 people after dinner - choose the add-on and receive two packs of Stockan's Orkney Oatcakes and a jar of Wild & Fruitful chutney.
Burns Night 2022 is on Tuesday 25th January - we deliver locally on the Monday before and on the day itself.
For courier delivery further afield the last date of shipping you can choose (to guarantee delivery before Tuesday 25th) is Thursday 20th January. Or you can choose dispatch date of Monday the 24th to arrive on the Tuesday itself.
The cheeses are:
Corra Linn - UnPasteurised, Sheep's Milk, Vegetarian Rennet
We believe this is the finest example of a Manchego to come out of the UK. Produced by Selina and Andrew Errington using milk from their own herd of Lacaune sheep. A hard raw sheep's milk cheese that has notes of sweet hazelnut with the earthy flavours you get from Scottish cheeses. It is delicious and one of our all time favourite sheep's milk cheeses.
St Andrews Cheddar - UnPasteurised, Cow's Milk, Animal Rennet
We like to think you can taste a bit of the Scottish earth and salty air of Fife in this cheese! Cheesemaker Jane Stewart uses milk from her husband Robert's Holstein-Friesian herd to create a sharp, strong, tangy cheddar, aged for 14 months – producing a cheese to rival any West Country cheddar. If you like your cheddar strong and eye watering this is one for you.
Hebridean Blue - UnPasteurised, Cow's Milk, Animal Rennet
All the way from the Isle of Mull, produced by the Reid family who are the last traditional farmhouse cheesemakers in the Hebridean islands, also making the incredible Isle of Mull cheddar. They use only raw milk from their herd of hardy cows who feed on grass and whiskey grains from the nearby Tobermory Distillery. This is a semi-soft, powerful, strong blue with beautiful veining and long lasting flavours.
Anster - UnPasteurised, Cow's Milk, Animal Rennet
Another cheese from the Stewart family - a traditional Scottish farmhouse cheese, most similar to a Cheshire. This is now the only one of it's kind produced in Scotland. It is milky, crumbly and fresh tasting with acidity towards the end, it is aged for only 8 weeks. In Scotland old cheeses were traditionally named after the nearest town - hence Anster which is the old name for Anstruther.

**PRODUCT SHELF LIFE - with the majority of our cheeses we cut and wrap them fresh to send out, hard cheeses last 7 to 10 days, softs last 5 to 7 days from date of dispatch. Please bear this in mind when choosing your date of delivery, you can choose up to 3 months in advance. We advise you arrange delivery for as close to your planned date of consumption as possible**
We do stock a small number of individually pre-wrapped cheeses which come in with longer best before dates and make a great option to go into hampers that will not be gifted for a while - please email for advise on which cheeses work best in this instance.
