ABOUT THE BRUTON BEAUTY
A mysterious, rarely spotted creature, the Bruton Beauty lives out of sight on the Godminster farm, and brings the gift of good fortune to all those she passes. Our original cheddar and a firm favourite, the Vintage Bruton Beauty’s signature smoothness puts it firmly at the heart of the cheeseboard.
ABOUT CHEYNEY’S FORTUNE
An ancient symbol of good fortune, the oak leaf comes from the great Godminster oaks, planted by much-loved friend of the farm, Cheyney. Smokey and mellow, our oak-smoked cheddar is named after the great Godminster oaks, whose leaves are a symbol of good fortune. The cheddar itself is the same gold medal cheddar that goes into our Bruton Beauty which is then cold smoked over oak chippings sourced from sustainable woodlands.
ABOUT THE HOWLING HOUND
This black dog – a distant cousin of the trusty truffle hound – roams wild on Somerset hills and is a good omen, protector and guide to all those who see it. Bold and rich, this deeply flavoured cheddar’s character comes from real black truffles for a truly special experience. Indulgent and luxurious, this cheddar is overflowing with rich and moreish flavours you would expect of delicious fresh truffles.

Cheese board gift set frequently asked questions
What is a cheese board?
A cheese board is often served after a main meal as a replacement for a dessert and consists of a variety of cheeses as well as various accompaniments including crackers, chutneys and sometimes fruit. It also makes a great meal in itself – just take our Grazing Goodness cheese board set, add some bread and fine wine, and enjoy!
How to assemble a cheese board?
When assembling a cheeseboard, it’s important to make the board look as good as it tastes with a beautiful selection of different flavours, shapes and colours of cheese. Slice the first few pieces of cheese so that guests can start eating right away, but leave some unsliced so people can choose how much they want. You can then decorate the plate with fruit and flowers.
How much cheese per person on a cheese board?
Depending on the size of the group, you should try and account for at least 30g of each cheese per person and around three different types of cheese.
What wine goes with a cheese board?
It’s a matter of taste! Some think that sweet wines go well with a cheese board, while others say that a dry white wine will cut beautifully through cheeses with higher fat content. Take a look at our cheese and wine pairing suggestions blog here! We also offer a cheddar and prosecco gift box featuring our favourite pairing of prosecco and cheese.
