Ashcombe

The clue is in the name – running through the centre of this light and springy cheese is a striking line of wood ash. This tasteless ingredient is a nod to old cheesemaking traditions when ash was used to protect the curds from insects. Made by King Stone Dairy in Chedworth, Ashcombe is based on the traditional Morbier cheese from France.

As striking in appearance as it is in flavour, the cheese is carefully washed in a special brine solution to develop a bright terracotta rind. The cheese itself is slightly elastic in texture with a tangy lactic acidity to the flavour.

Tasting notes: The flavours of this semi-hard cheese are comforting and rich, reminiscent of melted butter and fresh hazelnuts

Warner's Taste Club

Established in 2006, The Cotswold Cheese Co has been owned by husband and wife, Jon and Lisa, since 2010. The first shop in Moreton-in-Marsh quickly became the talk and taste of the town, with Cotswoldians and tourists alike travelling from far and wide to sample the cheesy delights of The Cotswold Cheese Company. The company has since gone from strength to strength, opening another store in Stow-on-the-Wold and a franchise in Burford, as well as establishing a thriving online business at cotswoldcheese.com
