Ashcombe made by Kingsone Dairy
Kingstone Dairy is a small scale, quality focused farmhouse cheesemaking business.
They produce their cheeses by hand using single herd, organic cow’s milk at Manor Farm Chedworth, in the Gloucestershire Cotswolds.
Inspired by Morbier, a classic French cheese from the Franche-Comté, Ashcombe features a striking line of wood ash running through the centre of the cheese.
Ashcombe is a large, flat, disc shaped cheese, which is carefully washed in a special brine solution to develop a bright terracotta rind. The rind is meaty and savoury, while the paste has aromas of warm milk and hay. The flavours are comforting and rich, reminiscent of melted butter and fresh hazelnuts.
Age 2-4 months.
Style: Washed Rind, Semi-Hard Cheese.
