Bonchester cheese PDO

The combination with alcohol

(unfortunately no data)

Bonchester is a British cheese awarded with a Protected Designation of Origin (PDO). The cheese was first developed on the Easter Weens Farm in 1980, on the border lands of England and Scotland, in Bonchester Bridge. Bonchester Bridge is in Roxburghshire, Scotland. However, the cheese is currently not in production.

Bonchester is a past bronze medal winner at the British Cheese Awards and was Champion Cheese at the Royal Highland Show.


Shaped in small, round flat cylinders and coated with a white rind, Bonchester is made from unpasteurised Jersey cow’s milk. A young Bonchester is clean and mild in flavour but often develops a stronger and more flavour as it ages. The rind colour also deepens from yellow to deep yellow depending on the degree of ripening.
