Frank and Gudrun Shinnick’s award winning cheese made from the milk of their own herd of pedigree Friesian cows The long grazing season on the fertile pastures of the Blackwater River valley produces superb quality raw milk.

Cáis Dubh is a 6 month emmenetaler style, creamy and mouth filling. Tons of layers of flavour with intense nutty/savouryness.. Slightly sharper than a Dutch Gouda, this is a tangy result perfect for a cheese board.
