This cheese does not use rennet and is therefore suitable for vegetarians Made with unpasteurised milk

Drogo

£7.50

A soft, fresh cheese, Drogo is made in South Devon specially for The Cheese Shed. Fresh cheeses like this are made very quickly - ready to eat in about a day - so they're always mild, very soft in texture and have no rind.

This sort of cheese often features added flavouring in some form. Drogo is very unusual in using fennel pollen - along with a hint of garlic; the use of Jersey cow's milk makes it particularly creamy. We also have two closely related cheeses: Pepperdon and Parke.

About 250g, unpasteurised, vegetarian.

NB: Drogo is named after Castle Drogo which is a few miles north of our home in Bovey Tracey. Designed by Lutyens and built in the 1920s, it's supposedly the last castle to have been built in the UK.
