Tunworth

Tunworth is a very British Camembert – a soft, white-rinded cheese wonderfully reminiscent of its French cousin. Tunworth is markedly different thanks to the lush grazing of rural Hampshire.

Despite being refined and perfected over the years, Tunworth is still made entirely by hand – from the first ladle of pasteurised whole cow’s milk to the poplar box packaging.

The finished 250g cheese has a soft, thin and wrinkled rind, a rich and earthy mushroom fragrance, and a long-lasting sweet and nutty flavour.

Winslade

Winslade, developed over a five year period, is the sibling cheese for Tunworth.

This Vacherin/Camembert cross is encircled in a spruce collar which gives Winslade a unique and distinctive pine note. 

A ripe Winslade is soft and unctuous with a quiet floral earthiness. More mild than Tunworth, yet superbly rich and gentle on the palate, this is a very popular choice on a British cheeseboard and suitable for vegetarians.

"Bringing two incredible cheeses like Tunworth and Winslade into our family is super exciting. The quality and reputation that Stacey, Charlotte and the team have established for Tunworth and Winslade is something we will be proud to nurture”

Matthew Hall, 4th-Generation Butlers Cheesemaker.
