Somerset Cheese Company
Somerset Cheese Company’s Six Spires cheese is a dense, slightly waxy cheese which has a rich creamy, yellow colour. This cows cheese has a well-rounded, mature flavour which is full of character. Strong, savoury flavours dominate with a sharpness to finish. The Six Spires’ texture is rich and creamy and just melts in the mouth!
Six Spires cheese was named so because from the high ground the dairy sits on, six parish churches can be seen.
Based on a traditional Chorizo recipe with the addition of cider and using the highest quality smoked paprika. The sourness developed during fermentation, with the sweetness of the cider, a mild heat from the chilli and a light smoke flavour make this one of the best Chorizos you will ever taste.
