At Knockdrinna, we now make cheese from the best quality milk that is available to us seasonally, so we don’t have a range of cheeses, our cheeses change depending on the milk available to us and the season. We make Lavistown, a traditional Caerphilly cheese made with milk from my neighbouring farmers cow’s milk. We also make cheeses from Sheep’s and Goat’s milk, hard and semi hard and feta style cheeses from a range of recipes We make bespoke cheese for special customers, and sometimes we have some of this to sell. So if you want to buy some cheese for us, buy our cheese selection and we will send you the best of what is in stock at that time of year, you will not be disappointed.
Knockdrinna Snow Goat’s Brie
Knockdrinna Snow is firm when young with citrus flavours. Softening from the outside into the centre, the cheese develops stronger more complex flavours as it matures which melt on the mouth. The cheese has a bloomy white penicillin rind which has the appearance of soft snow, hence the name “Knockdrinna Snow”.
Knockdrinna Gold is a semi hard goats milk cheese with a beautiful golden rind, which is developed naturally by washing the rind with an organic white wine wash. It has a creamy texture and a smoked nutty flavour with a hint of pepper when mature.
Major category winner at the 2013 British Cheese Awards for ‘Best Modern British’.
