British and Irish artisanal cheeses
We were founded in 2017 with the aim of bringing the best British and Irish artisanal cheeses to London’s iconic Borough Market. We work directly with each of our cheesemakers to understand the special history, seasonality and terroir of each cheese and we have built strong relationships with some of the best cheesemakers in the UK, such as Quicke’s, Cropwell Bishop and Cornish Gouda and Cashel and Corleggy in Ireland. Having these close relationships allow us to offer a unique experience to our customers bringing each cheese to life. When we decided to broaden our range to include charcuterie, as a natural partner to cheese, we were able to apply the same principles to quickly establish relationships with award-winning British charcuterie makers Trealy Farm and Tempus.
With a solid focus on providing friendly and knowledgeable service as well as high quality produce we have been able to quickly establish a loyal customer base. Running popular stalls in some of London’s best local farmers markets such as Herne Hill, Crystal Palace and Horniman market in south London, Victoria Park in the east and Alexandra Palace in the north.
Putting this relationship at the heart of what we do led to us being voted Slow Food UK Cheesemonger of the year for 2019 and 2020. This also became crucial during the pandemic as we were able to successfully launch an online delivery service quickly, building on already existing customer confidence. It has also allowed us to explore additional business avenues such as street food and pop up restaurant evenings, as well as more traditional options such as tastings and pairings.
