Oxford Isis appears to be made in Oxford:

...but from:

This fantastic soft cheese is made by the Baron Pouget for the Oxford Cheese company. Oxford Isis is packed as a whole cheese of 225g.


...then from:

This outstanding blue cheese is made by Baron Pouget of the Oxford Cheese Company in Worminghall, Buckinghamshire.


So, probably made in Bucks.

Thanks Phil, that is interesting. It does get confusing, as I discovered when trying to find out about the cheese produced by a local-ish 'cheesemaker'. None of his cheeses are made in the Cotswolds, but in Scotland and Somerset.

Best wishes

Isn't it just - at one stage, in Leicester, we had a brewery that didn't brew any of its 'own' beer!

Speckled Hen is no longer brewed in Abingdon ( just down the road), but in Suffolk :roll:

Thanks for the info on Isis Phil, I guess Worminghall is close enough :)
Curing is not an exact science... So it's not a sin to bin.
