A moderate farmhouse blue from the producer of the famous Isle of Mull Cheddar.
Hebridean blue is made from raw cows’ milk from a herd of Friesians, Hebridean blue and matured for a minimum of 8 weeks developing a rich crumbly paste and a complex, but not overwhelming, flavour.
In 1979 Jeff & Christine Reade moved from Somerset to a dilapidated farm Sgriob Ruadh (Gaelic for Red Soil) on the Isle of Mull. In the ensuing years they built up their farm and business from the ground up and it now includes cow housing and milking facilities, cheesemaking rooms and aging cellars, as well as its own hydroelectric plant. The farm and the cheesemaking operations are now overseen by their son and his family.
Enjoy this memorable blue with a vintage port or a wee dram of your favourite Scotch.
