The aged version of St James, produced by Martin Gott and Nicola Robinson on the Holker Estate in Cumbria.

Martin started his cheesemaking career with apprenticeships at the age of 16. He and Nicola then started their own business in 2006 with St James being their most famous cheese.  A washed rind cheese is one where during the aging/maturing process the rind is washed with a brine to develop an orange-coloured bacteria, producing incredibly rich, savoury flavours. They use non-intensive farming methods with the sheep only being milked once a day – this makes for a happier sheep who then produces better quality, richer milk.
