Made only by Lubborn Cheese Ltd, Somerset Brie is probably the best selling British vegetarian, soft-white cheese. It is usually produced in the shape of cylinder with velvety, smooth, white rind.

Ripened using traditional methods, the Somerset Brie portray a superior creamy taste and richer consistency. The cheese's aroma suggests mushrooms with a hint of green grass. It is a mild, fresh cheese with an edible rind and used as an ingredient in salads, sandwiches or paired with a fruit like apple or cherry. Somerset Brie is suitable for vegetarians.
