Christmas coming along I was looking for something different to send to my various family members dotted around the UK. Came across these guys:
British Cheese - Cheese Gifts & Hampers | Cheese Truckles & Barrels (chucklingcheese.co.uk)
Some of you guys have already used them.
Chuckling Cheese Company (ratebeer.com)
They have a cheese Advent Calendar at Lidl.
These guys do vouchers for excellent virtual cheese tasting sessions (the sessions are virtual, but the cheese is real and delivered a couple of days earlier). Some of the sessions include beer or cider tasting too. I’ve noticed a few other people here have used them too - I’d highly recommend them:
Buy cheese online and visit this award winning cheese shop, accolades from BBC Food and Farming Awards, World Cheese Awards, Observer Food Monthly Awards...
you don’t have to do virtual
you can purchase for someone else or yourself a live tasting … usually a Saturday or Friday night around 1900
sometimes get a brewer on as well and can ask questions
I’ve been on the one with the legendary Tom Oliver a couple of times
One of my mates got a cheese advent from Old Courtyard Dairy. It looks amazing. 24 small batch British cheeses delivered in 3 batches with a history of each dairy/tasting notes of each cheese.
24 different cheeses, one to open and taste each day up to Christmas Eve. An exciting festive way to sample such a fantastic range of British Isles farm cheese.

Might give a try next year - unless I’m in Australia (had to postpone going this year).
beer advent ?
This is just cheese isn’t it ?
I use the CYD all year round and saw this advertised … our Xmas cheeses arrived today funny enough (from the CYD)!
Just cheese, yup.
Sorry slightly off topic, but I thought worth mentioning.
FFS just realised i wrote beer in my post above when I meant cheese (now edited above).
