Now on sale at Aldi, the Christmas Cheese Hamper (€14.99) is the perfect selection of Irish handcrafted cheeses and accompaniments for your dining table this festive season. Sourced from the Hempenstall Farm in Arklow, there’s a cheese to suit every palate. It’s delicious simply served on crackers, to finish a meal, or melted, grilled or baked as you prefer.
The four cheeses include 150g portions each of Wicklow Baun, a delicious double cream brie; Beechwood Smoked Cheddar, cold smoked over beechwood chips for a unique flavour; Nettle & Chive Cheddar, a Swiss cheddary style cheese with just a hint of nettle and chive; and Plain Farmhouse Cheddar, wonderfully creamy sweet and aromatic. To complete the Cheese Hamper (and your cheese board) Sheridans Brown Bread Crackers (140g), are included alongside Ballymaloe Original Relish (35g) and Cranberry Sauce (35g) from West Cork.
Treat the cheese lovers in your life to a St Kevin Irish Brie Wheel (€8.49). This is a 1 kg whole creamy soft brie, from Wicklow Farmhouse Cheese, made with milk from the farm’s own Friesian Herd, perfect for the party season.
Aldi’s Christmas cheeses are available in store now, chosen to be at their best for Christmas week.
