About Our Cheeses

Our milk is collected from dedicated local farms in the West Country to guarantee the highest quality and freshness.

After pasteurisation of the milk, specially selected cultures are added to the milk. Vegetarian rennet is introduced to gently coagulate the milk into the curds that make up the cheese. The curds are cut into cubes to accelerate the release of the whey. The curds are then poured into moulds, which are then turned up to three times to drain the whey evenly.

Once removed from the mould, the cheeses are lightly dusted with salt, racked and stored in special maturing rooms. A distinctive edible white coat grows on the cheese during the course of ten days. Our cheese is then wrapped in a breathable material, allowing it to continue to ripen.

Lubborn Creamery Somerset Brie

Lubborn Somerset Brie

Lubborn Somerset Brie is creamy with a mild, fresh flavour and a soft edible white rind. The curd is the colour of straw, and as it ripens from the outside in, it becomes softer, richer and with a fuller flavour. To fully enjoy the flavour of our Brie, remove it from the refrigerator at least an hour before serving.

Accompany with a soft, fruity red wine and fresh crusty bread. For a simple way to round off a meal serve ripe Lubborn Somerset Brie with fresh cherries or celery. Lubborn Somerset Brie is suitable for vegetarians.
