Two-time International Cheese Awards Gold winner, Mull of Kintyre Cheddar is hand-crafted by the notable Campbeltown Creamery. Named for the remote, picturesque and lush Kintyre peninsula in Southwestern Scotland where the creamery is located, mull is a term most commonly heard in Scotland’s Southwest for the tree-bare tip of a promontory or peninsula.
Since the early 1900s, Campbeltown Creamery has been renown for producing traditional cheeses using only the purest local Scottish milk. But Campbeltown also has another rather mysterious distinction. The creamery stands where two Malt Whiskey distilleries once stood. Folklore says resident angels would sample and perfect the whiskey, giving rise to the term “angel’s share” for the mystifying disappearance of a portion of whiskey from each cask as it aged. And the legend lives on in the wonderfully rich and unique flavor of Mull of Kintyre, which must be, it is believed, in part due to enhancement by those same angels.
Matured for a minimum of 12 months then hand-selected at peak maturity for the fullest flavor, Mull of Kintyre is a sweet, tangy cheddar, made to a long established recipe. Naturally forming calcium lactate crystals can be seen on the surface of the cheese, which adds to the much sought after “cheddar crunch” and Mull of Kintyre’s unique sharp flavor.
Applicaton: Mull of Kintyre is ideal on a cheeseboard and goes deliciously with fruit chutney, fresh fruit, namely plums, grapes and apples, dried fruit, especially apricots and raisins, pecans and honey.
Pairing: Try with light, fruity reds like Barbera D’Asti or a Cru Beaujolais or dark beer, like a Porter.
