Drunken Burt is in fact a Burt's cheese washed in cider. It has a semi-soft texture with a golden colour and a smokey pungent flavour.
Hand-made using pasteurised cow's milk from local dairies in Cheshire, Drunken Burt, is a Burt's cheese with a difference; instead of piercing the cheese during ripening, which encourages blue veins to develop, the cheese is washed in cider. The 'paste' of cheese takes on some of the golden colour of the cider and also some of the flavour characteristics, sometimes you almost pick up the smoky note from the oak barrels. You can expect the younger cheese to have a slightly 'chalky' centre, which softens as it continues to mature.
