Fourth-generation Lancashire cheesemakers Butlers Farmhouse Cheeses are proud to announce their newest launch – The Perfect British Cheeseboard, showcasing their handcrafted hard, soft and blue cheeses to provide customers with the ideal instant cheeseboard to enjoy at home. The new product has been designed with smaller retailers in mind, for whom space is a premium, but who still wish to tap into the trend for farmhouse cheese and expanding support for domestic cheesemakers.
The cheeseboard features Butlers’ Sunday Best, a crunchy and crumbly celebration of the iconic Lancashire cheese, their popular Blacksticks Blue, a surprisingly creamy orange blue cheese with gentle bite and Button Mill, a small batch cheese known for its one-of-a-kind delicious rind and delicate flavours.
This curated selection of Butlers’ award-winning British cheeses is ideal for a sharing occasion at home, for picnics or as a personal treat for one cheese lover to indulge in. With demand for specialty cheese rising nationwide, the product is sure to entice grab-and-go customers who want a quality product, with accessible cheeses that they might normally find in restaurants, to take home and enjoy.
Matthew Hall, fourth-generation owner of Butlers Farmhouse Cheeses, says: “The Perfect British Cheeseboard product has been designed with ease in mind – with crowd-pleasing farmhouse cheeses that arrive as the ideal package for sharing (or not!) as an instant cheeseboard experience. We also wanted to make it as simple for retailers to tap into the craft cheese movement fuss-free. The Perfect British Cheeseboard achieves this, with great margins for retailers, making it an extremely attractive proposition.”
With the dairy still based in the heart of rural Lancashire, Butlers Farmhouse Cheeses use traditional recipes to make cheese perfect for the modern palate. Specialists in cheeses with quality and provenance at their core, Butlers produce more than a dozen varieties of cheese across three categories – Blue, Soft and Hard. Milk for the cheeses comes from within a 10 mile radius of the dairy and is mainly sourced from members of the family who have farmed the Lancashire countryside for over 100 years.
Expertly blending innovation and heritage, Butlers Farmhouse Cheeses are a benchmark of excellence within UK cheesemaking.
