(Average age 16 months)
A piece of magic which only comes with age! This is a robust, mighty strong cheese which has been described as “itchy roof of the mouth stuff”. Certainly once tasted, the strong flavour develops in the mouth and will linger for some time. “How cheddar cheese used to taste”.
Matured in cloth for a minimum of 16 months, our vintage cheddar is allowed to develop slowly in our carefully controlled maturing store.
All our authentic cheddars are made the same way, just selected according to where and for how long they have been matured.
We avoid 13 of the 14 known allergens at our dairy – other than the unpasteurised cow’s milk. We make all of our cheese from cow's milk..

We have analysed our cheese for nutritional values, but please do bear in mind artisan cheeses, made from raw milk are not standardised and values may vary throughout the year depending on the season, what the cows are eating and the number of cows in the heard. We buy from one farm only, so this affects the variation significantly.
