Inspired by the French classic Vacherin du Haut-Doubs, Rollright is a soft cheese banded in spruce bark. A delicate, peachy-pink rind ripens the cheese within to a rich, spoonable texture. David Jowett of King Stone Dairy fell in love with this style of cheese in his first job as a cheesemonger.
Named for the Neolithic Rollright stones on the Oxfordshire/ Warwickshire borders. The stones stand close to the original site of the Dairy, just outside Chipping Norton in Oxfordshire.
Rollright is made at King Stone Dairy, Manor Farm, Chedworth in Gloucestershire
The cheese has flavours of crème fraiche, cured ham, and mustard seed, with a smoky, woodsy aroma.Age: 4-8 weeks
