Jarlsberg® Original

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.

Jarlsberg® Special Reserve

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.

Applewood Cheese Logo


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.
