Cheese: Huntsman

Huntsman Cheese

Huntsman Cheese

Huntsman is the marriage of two delicious British classics; Double Gloucester and Blue Stilton, brought together through a complex layering process. Creamy, forceful Stilton is sandwiched between an exterior of mellow, Double Gloucester. The result is an excellent flavor combination that is as delicious as it is beautiful.

With the 2 layers of Blue Stilton you will take full advantage of the combination of Double Gloucester and Blue Stilton. Perhaps the best description is found in prose for Stilton as composed by G.K. Chesterton;

Stilton, thou shouldst be living at this hour
And so thou art. Nor losest grace thereby;
England has need of thee, and so have I–
She is a Fen. Far as the eye can scour,
League after grassy league from Lincoln tower
To Stilton in the fields, she is a Fen.
Yet this high cheese, by choice of fenland men,
Like a tall green volcano rose in power.
Plain living and long drinking are no more,
And pure religion reading “Household Words”,
And sturdy manhood sitting still all day
Shrink, like this cheese that crumbles to its core;
While my digestion, like the House of Lords,
The heaviest burdens on herself doth lay.

My personal wine pairing favorites with Huntsman cheeses are aged,  mellow Cabernet Sauvignon for reds and bright, crisp acidic Sauvignon Blancs for the white wine.
