Rennet & Rind is an award-winning Cheesemonger based in Cambridge, sourcing & maturing outstanding artisan cheese for more than 30 years and supporting British Farmhouse Cheesemakers.
The art of maturing cheese.
Mark & Perry are Affineurs and World Cheese Award Judges with more than 40 years’ experience between them and they batch select our cheese with the Cheesemakers. As soon as the cheese is in our care, we continue to lovingly age it in our own maturing rooms, developing the flavours, textures, and aromas, to enhance the individual character of each cheese so that our cheese reaches you at the peak of perfection.
We are pleased to say that we are good friends with many British cheesemakers and working very closely with them and understanding the challenges they face, allows us to batch select the very best quality cheese. To truly understand what makes our cheese so great, it’s important to regularly meet the maker, visiting the farm to see the quality of the milk, the cheese being made, and where all that wonderful flavour comes from.

Before the 1920s, British Isles regional farmhouse cheese was a rich chapter in our heritage being home to 1000s of cheeses. However, by the 1950s we were left with about 100 cheeses. The World Wars had wiped out our cheese and changed the nature of what was left.
Over the last 30 years we’ve witnessed a cheese revolution in this green and pleasant land of ours.
Since ‘The Great Cheese Renaissance’ of the 1970s we now make over 750 cheeses and once again we’re leading the world in making spectacular farmhouse artisan cheeses and overtaking our French cousins at the World Cheese Awards.
Our Award-Winning Cheese.
Harnessing our 40+ years of experience and know-how we challenged ourselves to create our own unique award-winning cheeses.
Awarded Super Gold at The World Cheese Awards.
An exquisite, cultured blue with complex flavours which develops a soft blue natural rind and a golden interior with dashes of royal blue. The Duke is creamy, sweet & salty, with a delicious peppery finish.
Awarded Bronze at The World Cheese Awards in San Sebastián.
A firm and supple alpine-like cheese, bathed in English Sparkling Rosé from Saffron Grange family vineyard to create a cheese full of buttery flavours, with an elegant curtsy of sweet notes.
The Duke and Duchess cheeses are handmade using the fresh morning milk. During the summer, the cows graze freely on clover rich pastures and in the winter dine-in on red clover haylage. This home-produced forage, together with the highest standards of welfare, produces top-quality milk which is rich in butterfat and the fundamental ingredient for making world class cheese.
The Perfect Cheese Companions.
Not your Branston pickle, although there’s nothing wrong with a vintage mature cheddar and Branston Pickle doorstop sandwich! Our perfect cheese companions are selected because of the beautiful marriage they have with our cheese.
Truffle Honey, Double Baked Fig Balls from Calabria, Spanish Quince Membrillio, Spiced Tomato & Vodka Chutney, Pear, Date & Cognac Chutney…
Or our locally sourced Honeycomb from Springwell Farm in Saffron Walden, where the bees are lovingly cared for by a Husband and Wife team, who follow a traditional way of beekeeping, producing a uniquely translucent honey with a subtle sweetness, the best that nature has to offer!
