Woombye Cheese Company Ash Brie 200g is a delicious award winning ashed brie-style cheese made in Queensland.

Ash has long been a traditional covering on cheese since medieval times, particularly in France. Woombye Ash Brie is handmade using Woombye Triple Cream Brie as the base. This cheese has a lovely creamy flavour with a hint of smokiness and mushroom. The texture of this white mould cheese is decadently rich and creamy and the ash layer in the rind contrasts beautifully with the pale interior when cut.  As a result, this cheese makes a striking addition to any cheese platter. Woombye Ash Brie was awarded Champion White Mould Cheese of Australia at the Australian Dairy Awards in February 2020.

This Award winning cheese takes 9 full days to mature and every day each cheese is turned daily by hand to ensure the rind forms perfectly. Twice during its 9 days of maturation, they are carefully rolled by hand through vegetarian French ash to ensure the outside of each cheese is coated evenly and perfectly.  Then while continuing to mature, the ash creates a beautiful thin black layer within the rind. The result is a beautiful cheese with a hint of smokiness and mushroom in the rind which compliments the creamy flavour of the rich interior.

Woombye Cheese was founded by Graeme and Karen Paynter in 2013 on the Sunshine Coast hinterland surrounded by rolling green hills, creeks and bushland. Pursuing their dream of making cheese, after fast paced corporate careers, they chose this beautiful, rural location to begin a new life. They were drawn to the lush pastures of the surrounding countryside knowing they would be able to source milk, fresh, every day from the herds of Jersey and Friesian cows at neighbouring dairy farms.

Today, the dairy still sits nestled among lush, sub-tropical bushland with spectacular views over misty valleys and surrounding farmland, where the temperate climate and ample rainfall ensure the dairy herds enjoy rich, abundant pasture. In this idyllic location, the Woombye Cheese Company make and mature their award winning range of handcrafted cheeses using traditional methods and locally sourced milk. This Australian dairy is 100% family owned and Karen Paynter alongside her sister Sandra and brother-in-law Barry Cadby produce a range of cheeses such as white mould Brie and Camembert styles, to washed rind cheeses and decadent truffle triple creams.
