Scrumpy Sussex

When we came to creating Scrumpy Sussex we wanted to produce a traditional family cheese with a twist. It had to be versatile, full of flavour and exciting, we didn’t however want it to be to overpowering, detracting from the wonderfully buttery rich cheese. So we added just the right amount of ingredients for it to be enjoyed as a wonderful and colourful cheeseboard option but also very much enjoyed as a Welsh Rarebit alternative. Scrumpy Sussex is made with raw British Friesian cows’ milk and mixed with herbs, cider and garlic. It is a rindless hard cheese which has been matured for three months and has an open and bouncy texture.

Milk Origin: Wonderful grass fed, free-range raw milk from British Frisian cows, cared for by the Franklins. Find out more about Lullings Farm here.

Maturation Period: Three months

Cheese dimension: Height 3.5ins width 9.5ins, half moon

Tasting Notes: The garlic, cider and herbs are gently blended with the curd, so when the maturation of the cheese takes place, the added ingredients have time to infuse and disperse their distinctive zingy flavours.

How to Enjoy: A perfect Welsh Rarebit alternative, or as an exciting option on any cheeseboard.
