'You cannot beat a good cheddar and this one is delicious. Slightly crumbly and full of flavour' Marcus Wareing - Judge
Between 18 to 24 months old, the full potential of our classic authentic Cheddar Cheese has been reached. This is true ‘Vintage’ Cheddar Cheese. Extending the maturing time allows the cheese to develop more depth and breadth of flavour, resulting in a more vibrant and nutty cheddar with a drier, harder body.
This is a robust, mighty strong cheese which has been described as “itchy roof of the mouth stuff”. But there is more to it than that! Once tasted, the layers of flavour develop on the palate and linger.....

You’ll savour the tingle on the tongue and our Vintage cheddar literally sparkles brightly on the palate, rising up into the roof of the mouth. There’s a nutty bite and you can even detect a slight crunch (that’s the lactic acid crystallising, forming calcium lactate, a white crystalline salt present only in long-matured cheeses).
Making the most of your Vintage Cheddar...
Because there is so much going on in the flavours of this authentic Cheddar. A piece of Vintage is best savoured on its own with crackers and even a pickle or chutney of your choice. The robust depth of flavour does make this an inspired and exceptionally tasty cooking cheese; less is required to have a remarkable impact.
Accompaniments to a cheese of this quality deserve to have big bold flavours. Enjoy with a full red wine such as Cabernet Sauvignon or a real ale with lots of character.
