As with our meat products, the artisan cheeses Aubrey Allen sells epitomise quality and taste
Our cheeses are lovingly handmade, often by the second or third generation of a family. Not surprisingly they have a lot in common with Aubrey Allen and that’s reflected in the long-standing relationships between Simeon, our cheese expert, and these craft cheesemakers.
Our huge Westcombe Cheddar is one of only three artisan Cheddars produced in Somerset. Farm-made from raw milk, it’s matured for a minimum of eleven months giving a firm, smooth texture and buttery, savoury taste. Whilst Mrs Kirkham’s Lancashire is crumbly, melting in the mouth to leave a lemony tang. Imagine describing these great cheeses on your menu?
We offer you and your staff product training, help and advice on product promotions and displays, as well as sharing our enthusiasm and knowledge.
“I fell in love with cheese 30 years ago and the love affair goes on. I’ve no intention of stopping. Luckily the great British public love artisan cheese too, so the future is looking bright for cheesemakers and suppliers“
Simeon Hudson Evans.
Simeon Hudson Evans, World Cheese judge, started supplying our delicatessen in Leamington with cheese in 2001. Russell took his advice on the cheese counter and the cheese sales began to soar.
So, in 2012 when Simeon suggested that his company ‘Fromage to Age’ became part of Aubrey Allen, Russell jumped at the chance as the partnership between a passionate cheese-expert and meat fanatics could only be a good one. Simeon has worked with our phenomenal cheese maker partners since their inception and works with new cheese makers to bring exciting new ideas to market as well as a wonderful selection of charcuterie, terrines and olives.
