Drunken Burt (180g) is a relative of the very popular Burt’s Blue. This cheese starts out in much the same way as the Burt’s Blue but rather than being pierced on the surface to allow the blue veins to form the cheese is washed in Gwatkins Cider.
The flavour of this cheese has hints of fresh apple from the cider, as the cheese matures it becomes less appley and more oaky from the aged cider barrels.
This cheese is suitable for vegetarians.
Allergen Information: MILK, CREAM
Burt’s Cheese started out life in January 2009 in Altrincham, Cheshire. It was a career in the dairy industry, that inspired Claire Burt to follow her passion for cheese-making. It started as a hobby on her kitchen table, but after winning Gold for Burt’s Blue Cheese at the International Cheese Show – Nantwich 2010, she decided to pursue the business full-time.
Burt’s Cheese is now based near Knutsford, Cheshire, and under the skill and patience of Claire Burt and Cheese- Maker Tom Partridge produces a range of award winning Cheeses. Burt’s Cheese was very proud recently to be named by the Observer Food Monthly as Best Producer.
