Product Description

Sheep Rustler is a semi-hard, Ewe’s milk cheese, handmade by Peter Humphreys at White Lake Dairy, on Bagborough Farm in Shepton Mallet in Somerset. The cheese has a distinctive orange/brown rind with the occasional bright spot of natural mould.

The flavour is warm and nutty with a lingering hint of sweetness. Perfect for summer with notes of fresh grass and meadows. The cheese pairs perfectly with light, delicate white wines and quince jam.  This cheese has just won Supreme Champion at the 2018 British Cheese Awards.

The first-ever batch of the cheese was made by the cheesemaker called Russell who worked alongside Peter Humphries and this is how it’s name originated as most of Peters Cheeses are named after friends and or ex girlfriends !

The milk is thermized as opposed to pasteurised and vegetarian rennet is added to the milk prior to it heated thus allowing the curds and whey to form and develop into this unique cheese which is an excellent alternative to a Manchego.
