Cambus O'May - Ardmore Whisky - 200g
All of our cheeses are handcrafted using unpasteurised milk from traditional recipes. Unlike mass-produced cheese that is standard in consistency and often unexciting in taste, cheese made with raw milk boasts a wealth of interesting flavours and textures. Part of the charm of producing raw milk cheeses is the difference in flavour that comes with different seasons so expect subtle changes in the cheese as the year goes on.
For a number of years Alex has encouraged people to also think of whisky as well as wine when they’re looking for a combination with cheese. He’s experienced and shared with customers a number of “wow” moments when the right cheese and whisky have been carefully matched. It seemed a natural progression, therefore, when the people at Ardmore approached him, to agree to make a whisky infused cheese! There then ensued a number of very enjoyable meetings with the Ardmore team to carefully pair the right whisky to the right cheese. Product trials were carried out and further tastings arranged to get the optimum balance and re-create the “wow” effect combining the dairy characteristics of our cheese with the unmistakable flavours of Ardmore. The result is Ardmore – the cheese with a nip!
