Cerney Ash
£9.75
250GM

"A cheese made to convert even the most discerning goat cheese sceptics."

Visually a striking cheese. A stark charcoal surface with a pure white interior. A refreshing citrus flavour, next to no 'goaty' notes, a masterful balancing of salt and a coupling with a somewhat light mousse texture, makes Cerney Ash a real subtle delight. 

Cerney Ash is a multiple award-winning cheese, including 'Best Goat Cheese' at the 2015 World Cheese Awards.

HERD

British Toggenburg. Anglo Nubian Goats

Purebred Anglo Nubian goats, with a few splashes of British Toggenburg. Anglo Nubians are known as 'the Jersey cow of the goat world' due to the high fat content of their milk, which makes it particularly creamy and prized by cheesemakers. 

MILK

Unpasteurised

Raw milk or unpasteurised milk is milk that has not been pasteurised, a process of heating liquid foods to kill pathogens for safe consumption and extending the shelf life.

RENNET

Suitable for vegetarians

Vegetarian rennets are either vegetable-based (made from plants such as figs, nettles and thistles), microbial (produced using moulds and fungi sources) or made using genetically modified rennet.

A Word on Rennet & Rind Maturing


"Not much to see here. We like to keep our Cerney fresh and vibrant, so chilling them on arrival and throughout their time with us, gives Cerney the best chance of keeping the texture mousse like. "

 Avril Pratt or Janet Angus

Cerney Cheese was started and continues to be run by Lady Isabel Angus. She developed a love of French cheeses whilst living and holidaying in France. Her particular favourite was the Valencay type, which she set about producing. The first step was to persuade a local French farmer's wife to impart the basic rudiments of cheese-making- not easy with limited lamguage and cheese-making skills.


Armed with the basics, Isabel started her long and occasionally fraught experimental phase, aided by her two trusty goats Bonnie and Bella. Production and the herd of goats soon grew. The intention was never to sell to the public - just to make use of land and enjoy the feeling of self-sufficiency.


However, after moving to North Cerney in 1983, a local villager persuaded Isabel to let him sell twelve cheeses. They flew off the shelves. Cerney Cheese and the Pyramid was born. The butler’s pantry at Cerney House was the initial production site but as the business grew premises moved to Chapel Farm in the village. This is where the cheeses are still made today by the wonderfully industrious Avril Pratt. We however remain true to the original hand-made recipe and process.
