Bath Soft is square cheese that is soft and yielding with a white bloomy rind, once cut into it reveals an ivory-coloured interior. The flavour is mushroomy and creamy with a hint of lemons. It comes wrapped in parchment paper with a red wax seal. This cheese dates back to the time of Admiral Lord Nelson who, in 1801, was sent some by his father as a gift. It was recorded that Nelson’s sweetheart was ‘gratified’ by the flavour of this cheese! Made at Park Farm in Bath who take a traditional approach both to how they raise and graze their small herd of 160 Holstein Friesian cows and to their artisan, handmade, hands-on cheese making.
This individual cheese weighs approx. 200g.
