All our cheese is hand-selected for extra flavour as we are the choice for cheese lovers, that deserve mind-blowing, explosive and addictive flavour in every bite.View Product
Natural, creamy Kerrygold Block Butter has been a family favourite for over 50 years. We can’t take the credit, it’s down to the abundant fresh green pasture that our Kerrygold cows graze on for the majority of the year. Thanks to our lush Irish meadows, the milk we use is so rich and creamy that once churned, it gives Kerrygold butter its natural golden colour and superior flavour, that can effortlessly uplift the taste of any recipe. But don’t just take our word for it, try it in your next bakes and dishes, or simply spread on freshly made bread for an indulgent treat.
Kerrygold Salted Block, Unsalted Block and Softer tub can be found in retailers around the UK.View Product
