50 Jack is handmade by artisan cheesemakers Lawrence and Rosie Reynolds at the Padstow Cheese company, based near Port Issac, who produce an emmantal-style cheese named Cornish Jack which is a regular favourite of ours at The Cheese Society.
50 Jack is a beer brined and semi-hard cheese. Smooth and creamy in flavour with slightly sweet notes and a yeasty undertone with berry notes and a bitter ale finish on the rind. This is a strong cheese with a pungent nose, you’ll know this cheese is in your fridge so we suggest a Tupperware for storage.
A recent winner at the Global Cheese Awards, 50 Jack won Gold for best Artisan Hard Rind Washed.
Please note all cheeses are hand cut, therefore the weights listed are approximate. We work very hard to cut them as accurately as we can!
