In the central plateau of France there are a number of cheeses that are all named after the local Saints. Like our Saint, they are all surface ripened, soft oozy cheeses with a light bloom on the rind – not a thick carpet of single strain white mould found on more commercial cheeses. This cheese can be eaten younger, when the inside is still firm and the flavour more delicate, or wait until the curd breaks down completely and the flavour gets more pungent.
1792 - It was the year the French first set foot on Tasmanian soil and this very French, very pungent little cheese, matured on aromatic Huon Pine boards, celebrates what could have been. It is made in the traditional method – its pinky-orange rind the result of being regularly hand-washed in brine, encouraging the surface bacteria that give this cheese its complex flavour and aroma. Great with cider, ale or a meaty pinot.
RAW GEORGE 130g
Made from unpasteurised cow's milk, Raw George is a bit like that one uncle we all have; unapologetically straightforward but once you get to know him he reveals a softer, delicate side with surprising depth.
WHEY STOUT 500ml
Whey Stout is a roasty milk stout enriched with lactose from our very own cow’s milk whey left over after cheese making. Our brewer’s yeast cannot digest the lactose sugar, meaning that it stays behind in the beer and enhances the sweetness and texture.
FARM ALE 500ml
Farm Ale is a unique pale ale made with barley, wheat, oats and hops from Tasmanian farms. Our flagship session ale is hazy golden, with a smooth bitterness and fruity hop aroma balanced by earthy cereal sweetness.
Oxymoron is our signature dark ale – or is it a pale ale disguised as a dark? Does it matter if you drink it with your eyes closed? Either way, Oxymoron straddles the gulf between pale and dark and is every bit as intriguing as it sounds, with spicy rye notes meeting pungent, fruit-driven hop aromas.
OUR PEPPERBERRY ONION RELISH 280g
We've taken a simple, yet refined onion relish and added pepperberry for a uniquely Tasmanian twist. The relish's sweetness and tang are paired with the Tasmanian pepperberry's characteristically delayed but intense peppery heat. Include our Pepperberry Onion Relish in your next cheese board or charcuterie for a delicious peppery hit, while adding a dollop to even the most basic of sandwiches is enough to turn it gourmet!
TASMAN SEASALT LAVOSH 150g
We've been looking for a great Lavosh to offer you guys as part of a cheese club for sometime now and this collaboration between Tasman Sea Salt and a local deli in Hobart has provided us with the solution! This is pretty great, all you want in a cheese cracker with just enough of a sprinkling of Tasmanian Sea Salt!
If any particular product becomes unavailable due to seasonal demand, we will substitute for one of equal or greater value.
