Top Cheese Picks This Holiday Season

COLSTON BASSETT STILTON

Known as the “king of English cheeses”, this blue is a creamy, pungent cheese that is neither sharp nor overpowering. Handmade in Nottinghamshire, it's one of the last remaining hand ladled Stiltons. Serve with some Marcona almonds and taste of tawny port!

SAINT ANGEL

This buttery, rich triple-cream cheese from France is simply amazing with some fresh fruit or smeared on a DLM Artisan Baguette with a flute of Champagne, of course.

COMTÉ ST. ANTOINE GRUYÈRE

A classic French cheese from the mountains of eastern France, Comté melts in your mouth leaving you with flavors that range from dense and smoky to sweet and fruity. Pair with sliced apples or melt on a grilled cheese with DLM Farmhouse Bread.

6-MONTH MANCHEGO

Truly special, this Spanish cheese has a slight caramel and nutty flavor that lends itself well to layering on an apple slice with a dollop of quince jam, and serving with sparkling wine.

FIREHOOK CRACKERS

These are the best to pair with cheese and charcuterie! All natural with the perfect crunch that lets the cheese shine.
