In the historic Campbeltown Creamery on Scotland’s craggy west coast, the Mull of Kintyre creamery insist on using time-honoured methods to craft their Cheddar.
The creamery has been producing cheese since 1923. Some say this unique cheese has a hint of the whisky that remains in the building from its days as a distillery.
The cheese is made from milk from local dairy farms, whose cows graze the lush coastal pastures filled with flora and fauna. The windswept landscape and warm waters of the Gulf Stream are the added ingredients that help create the rich texture and flavour, which makes Mull of Kintyre so unique.
The cheesemakers work to a long-established recipe using the finest milk from the Kintyre Peninsula. When it reaches the highest standards the master cheese graders then hand select the best. They work to ensure it has a firm body with deep, rounded flavour.
The result is an experience that truly tantalises the taste buds. Rugged, bold and full of character with nutty, sweet hints. It is a distinctive experience that slowly stimulates the different taste sensations. The perfect accompaniment to a cheeseboard or as a key ingredient in a recipe, such as Beer Chutney.
It’s not just us who thinks this cheese in wonderful, Mull of Kintyre has been busy winning many awards. Their awards include Best Vintage Cheddar at the International Cheese Awards 2012 and Gold at the British Cheese Awards 2010.
