A West Yorkshire based cheesemongers have launched a unique new cheese – washed with the finest Yorkshire produced gin!
Family run Cryer & Stott, from Castleford launched Endeavour at the Great Yorkshire Show, where it was also awarded a silver prize in their prestigious Dairy class.

The firm settled on the name Endeavour after Captain Cooks famous ship which was anchored off Botany Bay, hence the botanical connection, and subsequently then sunk in the American war of independence and famous the Boston tea party, hence the Yorkshire Tea edition of the gin being used.
Richard Holmes, Managing Director of Cryer and Stott said: “We’re really thrilled that our Endeavour cheese has been recognised in the Great Yorkshire Show Dairy Awards. This cheese highlights Cryer & Stott’s ability and innovation and it’s been a great team effort from planning and testing through to the final launch.
