The Wensleydale Creamery, based in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales, has brought together a new premium range of cheese to celebrate its tradition, heritage and handcrafted cheese making.
The Creamery has used milk from local Dales family farms to handcraft a premium range of cheese to compliment its current range of Real Yorkshire Wensleydale cheese and blended cheese varieties.
The Premium range comprises four cheeses: Wensleydale Blue, Kit Calvert ‘Old-Fashioned’ Wensleydale, Sheep’s Milk Wensleydale, Fountain’s Gold Cheddar.
David Hartley, Managing Director of the Wensleydale Creamery, said:
“We are proud of our heritage and company ethos, and want to ensure our products reflect this.
“By broadening our range with this premium cheese offering, we aim to strengthen our position as skilled traditional cheese makers, renowned for our handcrafted cheese making expertise and to meet consumer demand for our high-end cheeses.
“In a year to celebrate all things British and Yorkshire, we are very excited to cement not only our company’s heritage and provenance, but that of the region’s dairy produce too.
“By adding another new addition to the Wensleydale family, after recently launching ‘Dales Butter,’ we hope to further help sustain the Dales economy.”
The Wensleydale Creamery recently rejuvenated its product appearance to reflect its history within the Yorkshire dairy industry.
The new packaging depicts the iconic scenery of Wensleydale to celebrate the company’s long standing heritage in the region.
The Premium Range and ‘Dales Butter’ are two of many new planned products, aimed to further establish the Wensleydale Creamery as a leader in the dairy sector.
Dales Butter, launched at the Great Yorkshire Show in July, is made from fresh Wensleydale cream, churned into a smooth and creamy butter and wrapped in black packaging.
