This semi-soft cheese is smooth and succulent, melting on the tongue with a tangy after taste from the Newcastle Brown Ale.
The cheese gets its name from a Northumbrian sea-faring hero "The Admiral Collingwood" this ties in with the history of North Doddington Farm owned indirectly by the Navy.
Admiral Collingwood was second in command at the Battle of Trafalgar and many historians believe he was instrumental in the defeat of the French. It took a further 99 years before the Entente Cordiale was signed between Britain and France in 1904.
The Admiral Collingwood cheese is a marriage of good Northumbrian cheese washed in Brown Ale using a French washing technique. We feel the wonderful flavours this imparts are worthy of the cheese's grand title.
