Appleby's Double Gloucester
This incredible Double Gloucester is a traditional, full fat, hard cheese made from unpasteurized cow's milk. It uses the same ingredients as Appleby’s Cheshire but with variations in the timing, temperature and acidity. It has a smooth and buttery texture with a rich and nutty yet delicate flavour. The acidity is less dominant than in Cheshire and is balanced with a slight tang and mineral bite.
Double Gloucester is wonderful melted or baked into a cheese scone. The perfect melting cheese for your kitchen.
It is necessary to apply a common sense approach to cheese care and respond to the cheese you have in front of you, as opposed to following rigid guidelines.
The best option is to keep the cheese wrapped in its waxed paper within a box in the fridge. The container will help to prevent the cheese from drying out and prevent the cheese from absorbing flavours.

It's all about the heritage, provenance and legacy for Paul and Sarah Appleby and their five children. Moving all together as one unit, the dairy, farm and family are part of the rhythm of family life.This rhythm provides the ethos behind the way that the Appleby's farm - it is largely influenced by Paul's grandparents who came from a long line of cheesemakers.
Since 1952, Appleby's has remained in family hands, with this heritage forming an intrinsic part of what they do, from the way that they farm to the way they think about maturation. Their farmhouse and where they make the cheese has stayed as one of the last 'farmhouse' cheese dairy's left. As Paul and Sarah move the farm into a more 21st century mindset, they are continously returning to historical notes as their future is influenced by the same traditional values.
Recently, the farm has undergone a conversion towards a more regenerative and sustainable way of farming. Each cloth bound Cheshire encapsulates a moment in time - the soil, grass pastures, cows, weather season. It's a system which we swear by here at Pipers Farm and is so rewarding to see friends picking up this way of farming. The provenance and flora of the natural surroundings and landscape give Appleby's cheeses and butters a flavour that is totally unique.
Looking to the future, Appleby's is a pioneer for small traditional farmhouse dairies that are making delicious, thought-provoking cheeses. This is great British produce - giving people pleasure as they eat, ensuring a marvellous legacy for farmers and cheesemakers over the centuries.
