Berwick Edge was created by Margaret-Ann and her brother Neill Maxwell in 1993. Inspired by Dutch Gouda, it has a slightly harder texture and a fruity flavour with a long after taste. Like all the cheeses in the hampers, each one is hand made and takes an entire day to craft, it is then matured in clean Northumberland air for between 12 and 14 months to develop its full flavour. Earlier this year, it was voted the top cheese made from unpasteurised milk and awarded the prestigious James Aldridge Memorial Trophy as being the best of the 21 cheeses tasted by the judges on the day.
The Hampers are the perfect personal or corporate gift for anyone looking for a present which is both local and gourmet.In addition to being stocked in leading outlets throughout the UK, they have featured on Rick Stein's Food Heroes and Jamie Oliver young chefs from his 15 restaurants have visited the dairy to learn how good cheese is produced.
The Mini Hamper priced at £20 includes two cheeses from a choice of Berwick Edge, Cuddy’s Cave or Doddington Cheese, local chutney and the very more-ish Berwick Edge Biscuits.
