Shorrocks Cheese - Famous Cheesemongers
The Shorrock family have been making Lancashire Cheese for generations. The black and white picture attached shows Andrew's grandfather, John Gaskel Shorrock who won Supreme Champion at the last Preston Open Cheese Competition before the war broke out in 1938.
Since then Andrew's dad had championed many cheese competitions and in 2006 Andrew himself did a clean sweep and took all the prizes at the Royal Lancashire Agricultural Show, which was named 'The Battle of the Lancashires'. Only Lancashire cheeses were allowed to enter this competition.
Andrew has since been the original creator of the Lancashire Bomb, having originally made the first bomb as a leaving gift over 25 years ago for a friend emigrating to America. This was the start of this amazing product.
It has proven to be a great success in the North of England and is spreading South rapidly by word of mouth due to the great taste and originality of the product.
Visitors from the South have been sampling and buying the cheese bombs to take home and share with family and friends so they can experience the sensational Shorrock's hand made Lancashire Bombs.
The Lancashire Bombs are matured over two years creating a very creamy and full flavoured taste and texture. In addition to this original Lancashire Bomb Shorrock's now produce a variety of different flavours, this includes the Vintage Gold which is an extra year matured.
The Vintage Gold Cheese Bomb is handmade by the Shorrock family in the little village of Goosnargh which is snuggled quietly in the heart of Lancashire. Over 3 years matured it expoldes into full bodied flavours.
