Spenwood - Hard Sheep Milk British Artisan Cheese


Spenwood is a superb example of our British take on familiar continental styles, like Pecorino, Manchego and Parmesan. The texture is parched and slightly granular, and the flavour begins with a subtle nod to almond milk with a little zestiness, moving towards more complex savouriness, complemented by the anticipated peppery finish.

Spenwood is made with raw sheeps' milk and was created by Anne Wigmore in Berkshire. After a brief sabbatical in Sardinia. Anne fell in love with the native Pecorino cheeses of Italy and thought the British public would too. When she returned, she began to make the first Spenwood.
