How it tastesThis goat's cheese with a bloomy, natural rind has a white, chalky paste with fresh lemony flavours; more mature cheeses will have some delicate breakdown bringing a vegetal earthiness.

Historically, these cheeses are sold quite young – at about four to six weeks – although there is current experimentation with a longer age profile. The cheeses are re-wrapped on arrival and moved to a cold maturing space for the paste to break down, yielding a combination of textures. This cold but humid environment allows a breakdown beneath the rind to occur and a deepening of Tickelmore's characteristically crisp flavours.
