Winer of Best Cow’s Milk Cheese at this year's Artisan Cheese Awards! This is a semi-soft washed rind cheese made from unpasteurised Guernsey cow’s milk. The rind is washed with Soundwave, a local IPA from Siren Craft Brewery, which produces tangy, bittersweet, malty notes on the palate and a buttery soft texture.
Ingredients: unpasteurised cow's milk, salt, vegetarian rennet.
Village Maid Cheese was started by Anne Wigmore in 1986 after she had been working for the National Institute for Research in Dairying in Shinfield for 10 years, initially in the microbiological department, and then learning her craft of cheesemaking in their research dairy. Today her brilliant team continue to produce artisan cheeses that are recognised as some of the best in Britain.
