The Wensleydale Creamery has added a Yorkshire Brie to its portfolio of Yorkshire dairy products, offering a British alternative to the French classic.
The first ever brie from the Dales cheese-maker, Yorkshire Brie, is described as a soft and creamy cheese, handcrafted from Yorkshire milk.
David Hartley, managing director of The Wensleydale Creamery, said: “We’re thrilled to be launching Yorkshire Brie, made from Yorkshire milk, and can’t wait for our loyal customers to try it.
This story continues after the adverts:
“The Yorkshire food brand is fast gaining recognition throughout the UK and Europe for its world-class offering – it’s fantastic to be a part of this food movement, and we are particularly proud of this new cheese paying tribute to our French cheese-making origins.”
The Yorkshire Dales are an area rich in cheese-making history, dating back to 1150 when French Cistercian monks first settled in the area.
Packaged in The Wensleydale Creamery’s premium style with its iconic branding, the brie comes in two sizes (1kg and 230g) and will join the Creamery’s portfolio of Yorkshire dairy products, including Yorkshire Wensleydale, Yorkshire Butter and Yorkshire Yogurt.
It is available from independent retailers across the UK, as well as The Wensleydale Creamery Visitor Centre Cheese Shop.
