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 locals and tourists flocking to try the world class array of cheese and cheese accompaniments.
The thriving business earned the company a Cotswold Life Retailer of the Year award, and this success has led to the opening of further stores in Stow-on-the-Wold and a franchise in Burford, as well as establishing a thriving online business at cotswoldcheese.com.
You can find so much more than just cheese at Cotswold Cheese Co – there’s a great range of Cotswold Cheese Co marmalades, jams and chutneys, local honeys, breads and biscuits, wines, beers, ciders and spirits as well as olives, pâtés, oils and charcuterie.
Three cheeses to please
Jonathan Crump Single Gloucester
Single Gloucester cheese has a PDO (Protected Designated Origin), meaning it must be made in the county of Gloucestershire. It must also contain the milk of rare-breed Gloucester cattle – a rule that was introduced to protect this extremely rare, native breed of cow. Jonathan Crump’s single Gloucester, which is made at Standish Park Farm near Stonehouse, uses only the milk of the Gloucester cattle that roam the farm’s pastures, creating a cheese that is moist and delicate with a creamy, buttery taste and a sharp freshness to finish.
This Tomme-style cheese from King Stone Dairy in Chedworth is reminiscent of the cheese you find in the French and Swiss alps. Made using organic skimmed milk, it is light and buttery in texture with a clean, spritzy acidity. It also looks fantastic – a very welcome addition to any cheese board, and enjoyed with fresh or dried fruit and a glass of good red wine.
Wyfe of Bath
This popular cheese from the Bath Soft Cheese Company, was crowned Supreme Champion at the International Cheese Awards in 2019, beating 5,000 other cheeses from around the world! With an exquisite creaminess and distinctive flavour, the Wyfe of Bath is also recognised for its plump, buxom shape (a nod to Chaucer’s 14th-century heroine). It is succulent, nutty and creamy, with hints of caramel and the taste of English summer meadows.
