Butlers celebrate Christmas with a taste of Lancashire
An award-winning, British artisan cheese maker and a Lancastrian brewery have teamed up to create a tasty Christmas cheese gift.
Butlers Farmhouse Cheeses and Thwaites Brewery have made a special gift set combining three of the county’s finest exports - Butlers Creamy Lancashire, the delicate, lightly hopped Thwaites Wainwright, and Freddie Flintoff’s favourite tipple Thwaites Lancaster Bomber. Presented with rough oatcakes and a sweet tomato and chilli chutney, this gift is perfect for any Lancashire expats who crave a taste of home and fans of Lancashire cheese - the county’s best kept secret!
New Christmas Cheese Gift Pack
Gill Hall, third generation cheese maker at Butlers said of the new product, “Lancashire has a rich foodie heritage and we wanted to create a gift that showcased this. All our cheeses are made from milk from local farms so we chose to match it with two local ales that complement the soft, open texture of our traditional creamy Lancashire with their complex flavours. Cheese and beer make an excellent pairing so we hope people will enjoy this special Christmas gift!”
