The UK’s No.1 Deli Cheese with Holes* has a sweet and nutty taste with a creamy texture. The original Jarlsberg® is based on a secret Norwegian recipe from 1956 – so secret that only a handful of trusted people know its whereabouts and custodians. Jarlsberg® cheese has a rounded taste and mysterious holes.

This exclusive variety of Jarlsberg® is ripened for a minimum of 12 months. The ageing process retains the characteristic flavours and aromas, but intensifies them to produce a stronger, more robust cheese. It is a delicacy on its own and an excellent choice for cheese platters or as a finger food for buffets. It’s also well worth experimenting with as a cooking ingredient, where a stronger flavour is required to give your dish some real zing.
This low-fat variety of Jarlsberg® has the characteristic large, round holes of the classic variety, but with a lower fat content, 50 percent less fat than cheddar to be precise – perfect for those days when you crave the sweet, nutty delights of Jarlsberg® but also want to keep an eye on your diet! Available in slices, Jarlsberg® Light is ideal for sandwiches and light lunches.
The UK’s No.1 Smoke Flavoured Cheese* was first created in 1965, deep in the heart of Somerset by people who really know a thing or two about cheese. Made using traditional Cheddar, Applewood® has a delicate smoky flavour throughout and a lovely smooth texture. A truly innovative British Cheddar and a family favourite, Applewood® is finished with a hand-dusting of paprika for good measure. Kantar Data 2016*
Exquisitely smooth, rich and smoky. Applewood® Vintage is made from specially selected 12 month matured West Country Farmhouse Cheddar and has a predominant smoke flavour with creaminess of cheese that melts in the mouth. Creamy yellow in colour with a light, dusting of paprika on the outer edges, enjoy with a glass of Argentinian Malbec, seeded flatbreads and friends.
The UK’s No.1 Spicy Cheese* combines a fiery mix of bell, jalapeno and chilli peppers carefully blended with traditional British Farmhouse Cheddar and a secret mix of Mexican spices, to create a colourful, flavoursome and vibrant cheese. Also known as the Original Chilli Cheese, Mexicana® is not for the faint hearted. Dare you to try?

Also referred to as Norway’s National Cheese, this soft, sweet, brown cheese was created in 1863 in the valley of Gudbrandsdalen, Norway. A Brown fudge-like cheese with a distinct sweet taste of caramel, Gudbrandsdalen is made from mixing whey, goat’s milk, cow’s cream and cow’s milk. The cheese has a firm texture, sweet in taste, almost caramel like and melts in the mouth.
Italy, with its landscapes, its history and its warm-heartedness is the land that gave birth to Michelangelo. It was in Italy that his masterworks such as David, Pietà and the Last Judgement in the Sistine Chapel came to life. It can be said that Italy is the melting pot that joins art, sun and culinary delights, thus creating masterworks of cuisine. In this great land of gastronomic specialities, our focus is cheese and only carefully selected producers have been awarded the Michelangelo brand, a signature of Italian masterwork. Since 2004 Michelangelo has been the ambassador of the premium Italian cheese experience, bringing a piece of the Italian wonders to the kitchens of Chefs and to the mouths of gourmands.
