After 10 years learning the trade with some of the world’s best cheese makers, Rhuaridh Buchanan launched this, his own business in 2014.
By the following year, Buchanan’s Cheesemonger had won the Cheese Counter of the Year accolade at the 2015 World Cheese Awards.
Now a leading wholesaler, retailer and licensed café, Buchanan’s Cheesemonger supplies some of London’s best restaurants and hotels with a wide selection of cheeses, hand-picked from around 100 makers throughout Britain and Europe.
All cheeses are kept in the firm’s own cellars, each of which is maintained at a different temperature and humidity level to allow for the needs of each product.
Approximately 25 cheeses are brought from the maturing rooms to the shop each week and are offered for sale. The choices reflect not only what tastes the best, but also what some of the capital’s top kitchens might also be serving.
Bolstering this ever-changing supply of cheeses at the counter, the shop also offers a carefully curated selection of wines, beers and ciders, all with cheese matching in mind.
In the evenings, the retail space is used for cheese masterclasses and supper clubs. Private and corporate tastings may also be arranged for up to 18 guests.
