It’s National Cheese Lovers Day, one of our favourite days of the year here at Great British Trading. Did you know that cheese making is an ancient craft that predates recorded history? It’s been speculated that the magic of cheese making began somewhere around 8000 BC. Who knew? Well, we did, (obviously), so much so we have taken it upon ourselves to perfect our very own gourmet cheese gift box.   

We are proud to supply and manufacture a range of quality items for our gourmet cheese gift box selections. As Great Britain is home to some of the most delicious and iconic produce, this National Cheese Lovers Day we want to showcase all the new, weird and wonderful cheeses to include in your  gourmet cheese gift box, proving just how ‘great’ Britain truly is.

You’d think when it comes to manufacturing our own cheese to include in our  gourmet cheese gift box that we would crumble under the pressure. BUT, instead of having a melt-down, we have produced a strong contender. And when we say strong here at GBT, we’re talking mature cheddar strong.

Speaking of strength, here’s our top British cheeses to pack into your  gourmet cheese gift box to celebrate National Cheese Lovers Day (the right way):

  1. Our very own Great British Cheddar, made from quality British ingredients, extra mature
  2. 1057, Millbrook Dairy’s Extra Mature Scottish Cheddar, inspired by a King
  3. Snowdonia Truffle Trove, part of our Regal British Cheese hamper, a perfectly British gourmet cheese
  4. Applewood Smoky Vegan Cheese, for those who need strength in a dairy-free gourmet cheese gift box
  5. Shorrocks Traditional Lancashire Cheese Bomb, exploding with strong British flavour


Why not pair one (or all) of these in your gourmet cheese gift box with our perfect accompaniments? After all, it’s a national celebration! Here are our team’s favourites: 


We could Brie here all day filling up your gourmet cheese gift box, so how about a ready-made gift box suggestion to cheese the pain? 

We hand select a range of gourmet cheese gift boxes. Our favourite selection to share this year is our 1057 Mature Cheddar hamper. The king of gourmet cheese, accompanied by Mrs Bridges. What a pair!

In fact, we are delighted to bring together all of our best sellers to create the perfect gourmet cheese gift box, we even sell outside of the box with our gourmet cheese celebration cakes!
