A Smidgen of Glenturret Gives New Local Scottish Cheese a Twist

A Smidgen of Glenturret Gives New Local Scottish Cheese a Twist

An artisanal cheesemaker in Perthshire, Scotland, has launched a cheese with a tipsy twist to it – it is made with The Glenturret malt whisky. Strathearn from Comrie-based Strathearn Cheese is a rennet set cheese hand washed with a brine that is flavoured with a 10-year-old Glenturret malt. The brine, along with a four-week maturation process, gives the cheese a hint of a whisky that also prides itself on being hand-made.

The cheese is being sold in delicatessens and farm shops.

The partners behind the new cheesemaking business, which launched in January, say they stick to local ingredients as much as they can, which made The 10-year-old Glenturret, produced at the nearby Glenturret Distillery in Crieff, a natural choice.

“There aren’t many cheeses made with whisky in Scotland and it was important for us to make something that was very local,” says Pierre Leger, co-owner of Strathearn Cheese along with Drew Watson.

Stuart Cassells, General Manager at Glenturret Distllery, says: “At Glenturret, Scotland’s oldest working distillery, our stillmen still mash ingredients by hand. That’s why we’re delighted that our now 240-year-old brand is appearing in a new hand-made cheese. We are always thrilled when collaborations like this happen and we feel sure Strathearn cheese will be a delicious hit.”
