Caring For Your Cheese
Shipping Notes

Huntsman cheese is the weird and the wonderful layer cake like love child of Double Gloucester and Stilton Blue cheese. Before opening the wheel, everything seems normal as the outer coating is plain Double Gloucester, a firm cheese that is very similar to cheddar. But stand close enough to the wheel while it’s being cut open and you may just smell something amiss inside. Within the massive wheels of cheese lie three horizontal stripes of tangy Stilton Blue.

Although these cheeses may appear to be two things that don’t belong together, they work well in unison. Neither is overpowering and the tangy Stilton Blue is complimented by it’s encasement in the savory Double Gloucester. 

Cooking with this cheese may be a challenge, but definitely make an effort to include it in your next cheese platter. Not only can you get two cheeses out of this one, but there is nothing to start conversation like a big unexpected piece of cheese. 

For a pairing, you could attempt to match each cheese to a wine individually, but together, the flavors pair nicely with ales and beers.

Upon receipt of your order the ice pack may no longer be frozen. This is expected and should not be the cause of alarm. The cheese should be cool to room temperature. Once rewrapped and stored properly the cheese will last up to 3 weeks.

For optimal storage allowing the cheese to breathe and retain moisture wrap the cheese in wax paper, plastic wrap or tin foil upon arrival.

A - Bloomy rind, tomes, hard or dry rind cheeses - wrap only the cut surface in plastic wrap, leaving the rind exposed so the cheese can breathe.

B - Blue cheeses should be wrapped securely in tin foil.

C - Washed rind cheeses should be wrapped in wax paper.

D - Small cheeses such as goat’s milk crottin should be wrapped in wax paper.

E - Soft cheeses store well in waxed paper or sealed containers.

Store your cheese in a cool, damp place such as a wine cellar, larder, wine cabinet, or in the vegetable drawer of your refrigerator (the warmest part of the refrigerator).

As a general rule, aged hard cheeses last longer than softer, less aged varieties.

For the fullest flavor it is recommended to bring cheese to room temperature before serving.

* See cheese label for proper storage recommendations
