A full-fat goats cheese, made by Cerney Cheeses near Cirencester in Gloucestershire, using unpasteurised local milk and vegetarian rennet.
The cheese is closely-modelled on cheeses from Valancay in the Loire Valley. So much so, that the oak ash and sea salt used as the cheeses covering are specially imported from France.
The flavour of the cheese is less goaty than most French cheeses of this type, and some experts put this down to the fact that the Cerney milking herd is segregated so there is no danger of male goats spraying the females udders, so tainting the milk.
