Fourth-generation family cheesemaker, Butlers Farmhouse Cheeses is celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee with a special selection of British cheeses.
The family cheese maker is launching a limited edition Sage Lancashire Cheese especially for the Jubilee, handmade in Butlers’ rural Lancashire dairy in the UK. It joins its Jubilee party-ready Perfect British Cheeseboard, with milk from Butlers’ own herd of cows and goats.
Butlers last made a Sage Lancashire Cheese over 40 years ago in 1981, when it gifted it to the Queen and received a letter in thanks from Buckingham Palace. Fourth-generation owner, Matthew Hall says that Sage Lancashire Cheese “was the only choice” to mark the first British monarch to celebrate a platinum jubilee for 70 years of service.
Hall says, “Our farmhouse Lancashire cheeses are an undiscovered gem for lots of people around the country. We added fresh sage to the curds and matured it to our family recipe for an elegant, creamy and truly farmhouse Lancashire cheese. For those planning Jubilee street parties and bank holiday gatherings with friends and family, our Sage Lancashire will elevate your cheeseboard and add something really special.”
Butlers Farmhouse Cheeses has been hand-making farmhouse cheese in rural Lancashire since 1932. It celebrates its own milestone 90th Anniversary this year, and features in the official book, celebrating the life and reign of the Queen: “Her Majesty the Queen: The Official Platinum Jubilee Pageant Commemorative Album.”
There will be a limited number of Butlers Farmhouse Cheeses’ Sage Lancashire cheese wedges available to buy at Butlers’ online cheese store only from 19 May, priced at £7 per wedge (300g).
