Gimblett's Guide to the Best of British Cheeses: British artisan cheeses and their producers.
About the author
An innovator in the field of fine tasting experiences, Francis Gimblett has spent over thirty years selling, making, teaching and entertaining with fine wine and artisan cheese.
Following training as a chef, Francis became the country’s youngest sommelier at a five-star hotel a year after he was legally entitled to drink. He became head sommelier a year later. After subsequent periods in fine wine broking then winemaking overseas, he formed Taste the Vine with his wife Pam. The company has since staged over 3000 wine, cheese, whisky, ale, cider and other fermentation-based events in 47 countries over 24 years.
In 2014 their passion for talking about cheese evolved to include making it, when they started cheesemaking at Gimblett Cheese after two years research and trials. Starting with a washed-rind cheese modelled on the output of ancient monasteries, the couple are now developing a new cheese from an ancient Sussex recipe to assist knowledge of Britain's heritage styles of cheese.

Due to the relatively small scale of our cheese and condiment producers, occasionally some cheeses and condiments may be unavailable and we will have to substitute them with similar products. Please state in the notes on the Cart page, if you do not wish to have any substitutions.
