English Cotswold cheese, a variation of "Double Gloucester", was originally made from the rich milk of the black cattle of Gloucester and traditionally made in the Cotswolds. It is a traditional, semi-hard cheese which has been made in Gloucestershire, England, since the 16th century.
Cotswold is creamy Double Gloucester laced with onion and chives. It is smooth and creamy with a hint of onion. Hearty and flavourful. The savoury taste of chives and onions gives it that extra zing. This variation of Double Gloucester pairs well with beer, Zinfandel or Shiraz and is popular as a pub cheese in England.
