IJ Mellis Cheesemongers have now been trading, in Edinburgh, for over 25 years, sourcing cheese from all around Scotland.

We love supporting local Scottish producers and what better cheese to showcase this than Corra Linn – an aged sheep’s milk cheese made by Selina Cairns and her family in Lanarkshire.

Scotland is producing some fantastic cheese and we love showcasing all the hard work that the cheese makers put in to provide us with good quality farmhouse produce.
