Barlocco Blue (500g)

A creamy medium blue cheese
Description

This is a moderately strong creamy blue cheese, slightly punchier than Fleet Valley Blue. It’s made from pasteurised milk, and is very finely veined, giving a smooth, consistent flavour throughout.

Barlocco Blue was introduced in early 2020 and it has changed slightly as our cheesemakers have perfected their approach. The photos in this listing show a well-veined early batch, as well as a young wedge of one of our later batches.  The main difference you'll notice is that our new batches have a nicely formed rind on them, and the blue veins  continue to develop as the cheese matures.

For more information on how Barlocco Blue has changed, read our blog.

The name is based on Barlocco island, a small, rocky island just off the coast near our farm.

This cheese is made with pasturised milk from our cow with calf organic dairy farm. Cheese is cut to order to maximise shelf life. This cheese is best enjoyed within four weeks of cutting.

Your cheese order will be delivered in Woolcool packaging, a system of eco-friendly insulated packaging made from sheep’s wool. This packaging keeps our cheeses below  5oC  for 48 hours so that they reach you perfectly chilled and ready to enjoy. Cheeses are sent using a next day delivery courier service, however occasionally delivery can be delayed. This is happening more frequently during the coronavirus crisis and so we cannot guarantee delivery on your requested date. Please be reassured that our insulated packaging and chill packs have been designed to accommodate at least a 48 hour delivery window. Therefore, if you receive your cheese a day later than expected, the cheese will be absolutely fine. The Sorba-freeze ice packs we use are reusable, they can be dehydrated (on a radiator) and rehydrated with water and refrozen.
