Alsop & Walker Cheese

Alsop and Walker began in 2008 when Arthur Alsop discovered a friend was giving up making cheese and returning to South Africa.  Seizing the opportunity, he purchased the business and started to create a unique style of world award winning cheeses.

Based in East Sussex, the milk is sourced from a local farmer to make their cheeses.

One of his successful cheeses is the Lord London: a semi-soft, cow’s milk cheese created in honour of the London 2012 Olympics, which received a silver medal at the World Cheese Awards and was served at the Royal Wedding Breakfast of Kate & Will.

This year at the British Cheese Awards the Lord London was awarded Gold Award for the Best Soft Cheese and given the status of the Best Soft Cheese in Great Britain.
