A hard cheese, firm to the cut, slightly flaky in the middle, we describe Kern as buttery with caramel notes and a deep savoury aroma. A longer maturing cheese than Yarg, it develops over sixteen months within its handsome black wax coating.
Originally derived from a Gouda style cheese, we add Alpine starter cultures to give it individuality and to create a close texture which resembles Dutch and French/Swiss cheeses.
Due to be fully launched later in 2017, Kern is already winning top awards in the cheese industry. It is fast becoming as well known as our Yargs.
Wrap in wax paper, store below 8 degrees, serve at room temperature. Suitable for vegetarians.
