The Wensleydale Creamery are pleased to announced it will be launching a traditionally churned butter following customer demand for a regional option.
The famous cheese-maker, who previously produced butter last in the 1980’s, has introduced its new product ‘Dales Butter’, to complement its award winning range of core and blended Real Yorkshire Wensleydale Cheeses.
The Wensleydale Creamery will use its 115 years of dairy expertise, along with milk supplied by local Dales farming families, to produce the new butter.The premium product, made from fresh Wensleydale cream, will be churned into a smooth and creamy butter and wrapped in stylish black packaging, providing Yorkshire consumers with a quality premium butter.
David Hartley, managing director of The Wensleydale Creamery, said: “We have had constant calls from our loyal customers for the return of our regional butter, which prompted us to develop Dales Butter. We believe this new premium butter perfectly accompanies our current offering of branded cheeses.
“In a year to celebrate all things British, we are very excited to cement the company’s heritage and provenance by adding a new addition to the Wensleydale family.”
Dales Butter will be sold through independent retailers and from the Visitor Centre at The Wensleydale Creamery. The business then hopes to roll this out into supermarket chains this year.
