18.12.13 New Sherry Cheese; Peter O'Toole in Jerez
A new goat’s cheese has been launched in a joint project between Queseria El Gazul, based near Jerez, and bodegas Gonzalez Byass. The cheese, made from organic Payoyo goats’ milk has been aged for 45 days in Solera 1847 Cream Sherry, and offers a whole new style of cheese which is totally Jerezano. It represents a whole new, slightly bittersweet flavour, sophisticated and delicious. The Sherry cleans the palate and offsets the fats in the cheese, resulting in an exquisite gastronomic experience. Previous experiments were mentioned here some months ago, and now we have the finished - and excellent – product.
The late British actor Peter O’Toole came to visit Jerez in March 1962, during a break in filming of Lawrence of Arabia in Seville. He was very taken with the wines of Williams and Humbert, where he signed a butt, as did his co-stars Alex Guinness and Anthony Quayle.
