This cheese is made to the same recipe as the Lyburn Gold, but it is not matured for quite so long.
As the name suggests, there is a hint of garlic and onion, and the other ingredients are chives, parsley, paprika, ginger, and horseradish, the nettle giving the cheese a touch of colour, that can be quite clearly seen.
The garlic has however, not been included to such a level that it is too overpowering, and this presents a young well balanced cheese that pleases most people.
The Garlic and Nettle always full of surprises and Silver at the British Cheese Awards 2010, 2012 and 2019. Bronze for 2013 and 2014.
For 2017 we received a very Highly Commended from the International Cheese Awards in Nantwich. The garlic and nettle remains a big favourite down here in Hampshire.
