Guide to Spanish Cheese

Guide to Spanish Cheese

The land of a thousand cheeses. Spain's geographical and climatic diversity makes for a unique range of exceptional cheeses made from cow's, ewe's or goat's milk. There's a variety of different styles including tortas (with a liquid centre), washed rinds, smoked and flavoured. Spain benefits from a thriving artisan and small dairy culture that retains authentic characteristics and traditional flavours. 


We've curated a collection of cheese from all across Spain.

Most of our cheeses are artisan, hand-made in small dairies. They vary depending on the pastures the animals have fed on, and the conditions under which they mature. 


Our Balham warehouse is home to our specialist Cheese Caves. They were designed with the help of José Luis Martín, Spain’s most respected cheese guru – famed for building traditional cheese caves all over Spain. They are lined with authentic terracotta bricks, imported especially from Spain, to help control humidity. These caves allow us to ensure all our cheeses are kept in optimum conditions, so when they reach you at home the flavours are at their best.

They allow us to bring in rare and ‘high maintenance’ cheeses you may not find anywhere else, as they need the right conditions and turning daily.  


Make the most of your cheese and use our cheese care guide for tips and tricks to keep it in peak condition. 


Our cheese recipes are filled with crowd-pleasers - from canapes to complete meals, we have put together our tried and tested favourites.
