Somerdale Cooper’s Hill
Specially created for Somerdale, Cooper’s Hill combines the creamy texture and rounded taste of a quintessentially British Double Gloucester with the tang of Chives and Onions.
Cooper’s Hill is a certified Non-GMO cheese and celebrates a famous cheese rolling tradition enshrined in English folklore. Cooper’s Hill is the location in Gloucester where this tradition still continues. Each year, a wheel of Gloucester cheese is sent down the hill for people to race after. The first person to cross the finish line is awarded the 9lb wheel of cheese and the glory of winning the world famous event.
Cooper’s Hill is a fantastic addition to any cheese board makes a fantastic topping on baked potatoes and burgers. Of course, for those who enjoy the deliciously simple things in life, Cromwell is utterly divine when grilled.
When it comes to drinks pairings, a natural partner would be a British style Ale (in the UK, Double Gloucester with Chives and Onions is often referred to as ‘pub cheese’). To pair with wine, the complex flavours demand bold partners such as Shiraz, Zinfandel or Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Fortified wines such as Port would also form a rather special partnership.
Cooper’s Hill is suitable for vegetarians as only vegetarian rennet is used.
Somerdale Cromwell ships in cases of 2 x 2.5kg wheels and 12 x 150g retail portions.
