Our Favourite Cheeseboard Hampers

Come rain or shine, a cheeseboard will always be a great choice for entertaining guests. You may be looking to create an elegant evening with local cheeses and bubbles for a number of guests or setting off on a picnic and would need enough for 2 or 3 of you to enjoy. You may also wish to gift a friend with a taster menu of a variety of cheeses, and you can leave the hassle of date night to us creating your perfect date-night cheese course. Our cheeseboards are so versatile there’s something for everyone! We even offer gluten-free and vegan options.

Our cheeseboard hampers, and cheese-featuring hampers, take away the nuisance of sourcing the cheeses and accompaniments yourself. They come in a range of sizes and contents so you can pick the perfect one for you and your guests. However, we also have the option to create your own, which is a great opportunity for any cheese connoisseur to get creative.

The focal point of any cheeseboard is, of course, the cheese. You may favour a rich and creamy brie, perhaps a strong cheddar or even a tangy stilton is your cheese of choice. Whichever cheese makes your tastebuds tingle, we’ve got more than enough for you to choose from.

If you’re looking for a crowd-pleaser, Cheddar is always a fan favourite. It pairs beautifully with our incredibly wide variety of accompaniments and beverages, making it one of the staples of a classic cheeseboard. However, if you’re looking to bring some flair to your cheeseboard hamper why not go for a flavoured cheddar and surprise your guests with something different? Featuring Wainwright’s Choice Caramelised Red Onion Cheddar, the Stratford Hamper is sure to bring a little variety to the dinner table. Fear not, the Stratford Hamper also comes with a classic mature cheddar, for those feeling a little less adventurous, alongside Arden’s Tomato & Basil Puff Pastry Twists, a bottle of Hardy’s Stamp Shiraz Cabernet and more.

Another beloved cheese, that features in a number of our cheeseboard hampers, is Brie. The velvety texture of Brie pairs beautifully with any crunchy cracker or sweet jam, which often feature in our hampers. One of our favourite Brie hampers is the Wellington Hamper. Together with Mrs Bridges Luxury Scottish Strawberry Preserve and Stockans Orkney Oatcakes, you’ll find the Simon Weaver Organic Cotswold Brie. This beautifully buttery and delicate Brie sits next to a sharp Wainwrights Choice Farmhouse Cheddar for the perfect contrast, this hamper is sure to be a crowd-pleaser. Our Cheese Board Selection Gift Set also features these two cheese staples, it can even be personalised making it a great option for gifting a partner or loved one.

For those who favour bolder taste, Stilton is sure to be the best option. A number of our cheeseboard hampers feature the exquisite Cropwell Bishop Blue Stilton, a 12-week aged melt-in-the-mouth sensation. Like our Hampton Gift Hamper, a cornucopia of treats with crisps, biscuits and smoked salmon as well as a few sweet treats like Lindt Lindor Milk Chocolate Truffles and the indulgent Ultimate English Simply Marvellous All Butter Fudge. This is a decadent hamper for those with a taste for luxury.

Biscuits, Chutneys and More

Our cheese hamper ideas go well beyond cheese; after all, a cheeseboard simply wouldn’t be complete without a variety of cheese-worthy accompaniments. From biscuits, crackers, oatcakes, crisps and meats, to jams, chutneys and marmalades, it’ll be no easy feat deciding which accompaniments to include in your cheeseboard. Fortunately, we’ve a wealth of cheeseboard hamper ideas & knowledge to share with you, complete with classic pairings as well as our favourite combinations.

Savoury Pairings

Many of our cheeses benefit from a crunchy or salty accompaniment to contrast against the smooth creamy textures. We really recommend including biscuits or crackers in your cheeseboard hamper, which is why we pack our hampers full of them! Other savoury items like olives and pickles also pack a perfect punch and make a great addition to any hamper. Our Ploughman’s Choice gift crate is a fine example of savoury cheese pairings. Along with the smooth and rich Farmhouse Pate from Cottage Delight, you’ll find their Pickled Shallots and Old English Chutney, as well as Pipers Crisp Co Cheddar and Onion crisps – a perfect harmony of treats. Similarly, our Cheese & Pate Selection gift box, features Filbert’s Pitted Marinated Olives and Chilli & Lime Peanuts, amongst other savoury delights, which will perfectly compliment the stilton cheese.

Sweet Pairings

Sweet jams can make a salty cheese really sing, especially Brie and Camembert. It is crucial when including cheese in your hamper that you’ve a chutney on hand to mellow out the intense flavours, but some creamier cheeses need something sweeter. In a number of our cheeseboard hampers you’ll find different kinds of sweet relishes that we think fit perfectly with the featured cheeses. For example, in our Arundel Hamper you’ll find the Cottage Delight Caramelised Onion Chutney alongside their Strawberry Jam, a Brie, Cheddar, crackers and more. To finish, you’ll find glorious Lindt Lindor Chocolate Truffles and The Cotswold Gourmet Cherry and Almond Slab Cake, for just a little more sweetness. Fruits also pair incredibly well with cheeses (particularly apples, grapes and pears) and our Fresh Fruit, Cheese and Biscuits Gift Basket takes this holy trinity of cheese complements to the next level. In amongst two Cheddars and a Brie you’ll find kiwi fruit, pineapple, oranges and more; why not use this opportunity to try some new flavour pairings and discover your new favourite!

Drinks Pairings

No guide on cheese pairings would be complete without mentioning drinks! With wine already the staple of cheese and drink pairings, it is easy to fall into comfortable habits; why not try something a little different when creating or choosing your cheeseboard hamper?

Port is a traditional and popular drink that is often enjoyed with stilton; the strong flavours complement each other in an unexpected but particularly pleasant way. It might be fun to finish an evening with friends with a tipple and a wedge of Stilton, and this is easily done if you have our Traditional Port & Stilton hamper to hand. Beside Graham’s Vintage Port and Cropwell Bishop Blue Stilton, you’ll also find a delicious Penfolds Shiraz-Cabernet Sauvignon and an Organic Cotswold Brie from Simon Weaver for those looking to stick with softer flavours.

If you’re feeling fancy, adding bubbles is always a wonderful option. Plenty of cheeses pair well with sparkling wines, prosecco and champagne, and many of our hampers feature the two together; take the Downton Hamper, for example, complete with Zonin 1821 Prosecco Doc Spumante, a vintage Cheddar and Cotswold Brie. Maybe you want to stick with the classics? If that’s the case, then we’ve got plenty of wine and cheese combinations for you to take inspiration from! Our Cheese & Wine Favourites gift box, for example, features classic favourites perfect for every guest. With 2 flavours of Cheddar and a Casillero del Diablo Cabernet Sauvignon it’s impossible to go wrong.
