Cathedral City Mature Cheddar

Britain has a vast wealth of experience to draw on when making Cheddar. Originally made in the fifteenth century and matured in Somerset's Cheddar Gorge caves, it has become Britain's most popular cheese and has been imitated by countries across the world. However, no other country has been able to steal Britain's Cheddar crown. Cathedral City Mature Cheddar is made to a special, traditional recipe in the West Country - the home of Cheddar. It is matured over many months to give a smooth, rounded flavour and a texture that is tantalisingly firm and a little flinty. Many think that this cheese is delicious with Guinness. A more orthodox companion would be Merlot.

Cathedral City Extra Mature Cheddar

British cheesemakers have developed Cheddar over a course of centuries, honing the skills that have made the cheese a global bestseller, imitated to no avail by many other countries. Cathedral City Extra Mature Cheddar takes sixteen months to develop its distinctively tangy, full-bodied, and luxurious flavour and its wonderfully flinty texture. Enjoy with a Merlot or Claret and the perfect evening stretches out in front of you.

There are even more mature variants now in the market place - look for Cathedral City 20 (matured for at least 20 months for an even fuller and more complex flavour).
