January Competition – Welcome in 2018 with the Cheshire Cheese Company

I’ve never really thought that January was a good time to give things up. I understand the need to rein in the excesses of Christmas a little, but these cold, dark days are hardly the best time for abstinence. And what better way to bring some sunny cheer to January than by winning a gift box of the fresh and zesty Gin and Lemon Cheshire Cheese from The Cheshire Cheese Company? Read on to find out how…

Award-Winning Cheese from the Heart of Cheshire

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you can’t fail to have noticed that local favourites The Cheshire Cheese Company have had their busiest ever Christmas, all thanks to the storm created on social media and beyond by their Gin and Lemon Cheshire Cheese. Maybe it’s our continued love of all things gin or perhaps it’s the unique deliciousness of the cheese, but either way, two weeks before Christmas a number of online publications ran a story on the cheese and the company were immediately inundated with over 3500 orders. It’s to the team’s very great credit that they worked all hours in the run-up to Christmas to cope with demand and ensure as many people as possible got to try the new cheese.

If you haven’t tried it yet, now’s your chance. With its subtle but definite gin flavour and a slight sweetness from the lemon pieces that works beautifully with the creaminess of the traditional Cheshire cheese, it’s no wonder the Gin and Lemon picked up a bronze award at last summer’s International Cheese Awards. It’s just one of the wide range of innovative flavours offered by the Macclesfield-based company – you can see the full range here. The Cheshire Cheese Company can also be found at a number of local markets and food festivals – follow them on social media to find out where they’ll be popping up next!
