Cranborne Blue is the first blue cheese made by the energetic Book & Bucket Cheese Company, based just outside Wimborne in Dorset. It came out of a partnership with a local farm that was struggling to sell its milk during the lockdown period in 2020.
This blue has an oaty sweetness in the taste with a salty, but very gentle, edge from the blue veining. The rind gives an earthy counter note without overpowering the subtlety of the more delicate flavour. This is probably the mildest blue cheese we stock.
