A Review of Cheese Gift Boxes from The Cheese Society

The Cheese Society – Overview

The Cheese Society are unique as they run a highly rated and much-loved Cheese restaurant in addition to selling artisan cheese in their shop. In other words, they sell what they eat and serve in their shop. Happily, we can now buy Cheese Gift Sets (similar to Cheese Hampers) online. I believe this is one of the “hidden gems” for any cheese lovers in the UK but below are some images of just why.
