Admiral Collingwood is a cheese of great distinction befitting Nelson’s right hand man at Trafalgar.
This semi soft raw milk cheese rind is washed in Newcastle Brown Ale. This confers extra flavours as it’s characteristically pink rind develops. On tasting it’s buttery savoury undertones give way to an effusively complex aftertaste. Collingwood is made using traditional rennet, comes in a minimum of 1 kg square truckles and is aged for up to 10 months.
A great complement to the sweetness of a quince jelly together with a rough oat cake. The faintly honeyed notes of a glass of chilled pinot grigio completes the taste experience.
