Paxton & Whitfield unveil their Artisan Cheese Advent Calendar 2022
Paxton & Whitfield, the UK's oldest cheesemonger has launched it's 2022 Artisan Advent Cheese Calendar (£150 with free UK delivery). The 2021 edition sold out by early November and the 2022 Advent Calendar already has a waiting list! Dan Bliss, the cheese buyer for Paxton & Whitfield, explains: "We were overwhelmed by the incredible reviews from customers who enjoyed their Paxton's cheese advent calendar experience last Christmas. There was no doubt in our minds that we would create a sequel for 2022. We're celebrating our 225th birthday as a cheesemonger in 2022, so this year's calendar will contain a taste of some of the latest cheeses from our brand-new maturation rooms, as well as classic historic, artisan cheeses. The box design draws on our heritage too – featuring our London Jermyn Street shop front in the snow."
Dan continues, "The Paxton & Whitfield Advent Calendar is an immersive cheese-tasting and learning experience. We have carefully selected 24 artisan varieties for a delicious tasting journey - one cheese per day to savour in the run up to Christmas Day. Each individually numbered advent box contains a factsheet with more information about the cheese, its maker and pairing or recipe ideas. Each advent box is beautifully presented and fully recyclable, with shredded paper inside and a minimum 75g cut of cheese, hand-wrapped in Paxton & Whitfield wax paper. The cheeses are portioned pieces as the perfect daily amount to enjoy yourself, but also a large enough taster to share if you want to!"
Recipients will receive three fresh deliveries of eight hand-cut and hand-wrapped, advent artisan cheese boxes in December. The first advent parcel will be delivered on 30th November, followed by the second on 7th December and the final advent parcel on 15th December. The cheese boxes are packaged with 100% sheep's wool insulation and reusable icepacks and sent on an overnight, carbon-neutral delivery service for an impressive and fresh arrival. This carefully curated cheese advent calendar will feature festive classics such as Gruyere and Stilton, as well as more unusual cheeses from artisan British and European cheesemakers. Lucky recipients will taste and learn about award-winning cheesemakers including Village Maid, Mrs Kirkhams Lancashire Cheese and Montgomery's Cheddar.
