At Hampshire Cheese Company we are passionate about artisan cheesemongers and today in our spotlight series we go behind the scenes with Hamish Johnston. Buying cheese with the expert guidance of a specialist cheesemonger allows every customer to not only buy the perfect cheese at the desired ripeness for their occasion, but also to learn more about different cheeses and understand their progeny.
Hamish Johnston share their expertise with their customers from their widely acclaimed shop in Northcote Road, Battersea, London. A family run independent business, they sell quality cheeses and deli produce with a focus on their local community. They take enormous pride in the quality of produce they stock, and offer customers the opportunity to taste the cheese before they make a decision, making sure it’s the right cheese for their occasion and their palate. Whether you’re after the perfect cheese board or even a wedding cheese cake, their knowledgeable team will guide you to the perfect cheeses.
Established in 1994, Will Johnston opened the shop with a mission to share a broad selection of artisan and farmhouse cheeses and quality produce. In 2001 they set up a wholesale arm to the business which now provides the same quality produce to over 350 food businesses across London and the East of England.
Not content with just sharing their passion for delicious cheeses to their customers who visit their shop, the team also host tasting evenings, matching cheeses and fine deli produce with a variety of wines, spirits and beers. If you’re looking to do something different, Hamish Johnston can also create a bespoke tasting evening for friends, family or an interesting work event.
