Here's something to warm the cockles of your heart; a good strong cheddar laced with whisky and a smooth yet crumbly texture. Amber Mist is another inspired creation from the Snowdonia Cheese Company, champions of regional food and makers of wonderful cheeses from happy grass fed cows.
The bite of the mature cheddar is set off nicely by the warmth of the whisky. The perfect choice for cold winter's night - or any other night you fancy.
What with? A nice smooth dram of Bowmore 12 year old malt goes down very nicely with amber mist. This lovely sharp cheese is also easily paired with a lot of different chutneys and crackers. Sweet Apple or Caramelised Onion are just two flavours to be tried.

The roots of the Snowdonia Cheese Company evolved from the change in food and farming in the latter part of the last century. The globalised food production model was emerging, and consumers wanted to return to localised foods as an important part of their diet. Snowdonia set out with a 21 year business plan to define itself as a regional champion of food, and to build its market in the UK and in export over the longer term.
One third of the way through that plan, Snowdonia has brought a range of contemporary cheeses into the market, and is now working in additional food categories such as pickles and preserves.
