Delight your taste buds with our 12 months Cave Matured Cheddar Cheese. For the first time in living memory Cheddar Cheese is once again matured in Gough’s Cave in the heart of Cheddar Gorge. The influence of the cave environment has been remarkable in terms of texture and taste. It is bursting with unique mature flavour. So, the cheddar is complex yet creamy, smooth and well-rounded offering a subtle earthy taste.
Natural cave matured cheddar is smooth and well rounded. It has a soft but BIG rounded flavour. The creaminess in comparison with Mature and Vintage is notable and this cheese is unique in its complexity and character. The delicate and softer notes in this cheddar will benefit from not being overwhelmed by flavours that are too bold. Lighter style reds such as Bordeaux make a good pairing. Equally a white wine with character such as a Sauvignon Blanc would go very well. Similarly, lighter ales and even a crisp cider make good bedfellows.

The only Cheddar made in Cheddar! Matured for around 12 months in Gough’s Cave. The Cheddar Gorge Cheese Company are the first cheesemakers in living memory, to mature cheddar cheese within the Natural Cheddar Gorge Caves. The taste is indeed extraordinary! Likewise the influence of the cave environment has been remarkable in terms of texture and taste.
