A soft and smooth goat's cheese with a delicate rind. Made gently by hand from raw milk and aged for about 3 weeks, during which time blue & green flecks appear on the surface. The style is reminiscent of a lactic goat's cheese from the Loire in France, silky smooth with complex herbaceous & nutty flavours when fully mature.
Martin and Nicola Gott use a non-intensive method of farming: the sheep and goats graze the rich fields of the Holker Estate and are only milked once a day, making for a less-stressed animal and great quality milk. Martin propagates his own starter cultures rather than buying them in - a very rare thing nowadays!
