Iain Mellis Cheesemonger supplies the finest farmhouse cheese and other specialist foods wholesale to restaurants, delicatessens, hotels and stores in Scotland and Ireland. Our first store was opened in a small cave-like space located in the heart of the city. Iain now has 5 stores across Scotland with a now newly launched online store to cater for those out of reach of good quality cheese.
We source the majority of our cheese directly from small family-run farms, who hand-make their products within walking distance of the pastures in which the animals graze. This detailed knowledge of the chain of production is vital for us to guarantee the quality of our products.
All our cheeses are expertly matured by our trained affineurs in our Edinburgh maturing rooms and this enables us to provide cheese perfectly ripened and ready to eat.
We have a range of jobs available that involve cheese. From brushing, washing and turning cheeses in our maturing rooms, to selling cheese and cured meat in our retail stores. Aside from cheese our customers are the most important part of our business so retail experience would be preferable however not existential. What is essential is that you love cheese. We consider ourself a big family, everyone is very close and we work together to ensure every cheese monger is as knowledgeable as the next.
