Made by Lynher Dairies Cornish Kern is a hard cheese made using pasteurised cows’ milk. It is firm to cut and slightly flaky in the middle. This buttery cheese comes with caramel notes and a deep savoury aroma. It developes excellent black wax coat after fully matured for over sixteen months. The cheese is originally derived from a Gouda style cheese, but with added Alpine starter cultures to give it individuality.
