To celebrate the arrival of the Great Exhibition in Newcastle this summer, Northumberland Cheese Companyhave come up with a brilliant, limited-edition Great North giftbox, which contains four wedges of cheese all named after beauty spots in the North-East. First there is the Kielder, a full-fat Jersey milk cheese named after the beautiful Kielder Water. Next, we have Hadrian, a cows’ milk cheese infused with caraway seeds, and named after the amazing Hadrian’s Wall. They’ve also included the cows’ milk cheese Cheviot - their most mature cheese, named after the famous Cheviot hills in Northumberland - and a wedge of Elsdon goats’ cheese. This tiny little village in Northumberland was where the business was originally founded back in 1984, so it’s only fitting to include it! All in all, the collection is a lovely tribute to the North-East, and a great introduction to the handmade cheeses available from Northumberland Cheese Company. The whole range, plus a number of gifts and hampers, is available to buy here on the company website – or you could have a go at winning a Great North giftbox in our competition!
