A complex, creamy traditional clothbound farmhouse cheddar from the legendary Mary Quicke. Matured for 12 months, it offers outstanding depth of flavour.
Being the most famous cheese in Quicke's range, this Traditional Mature Cheddar is made by slowly maturing a muslin-wrapped truckle for a year. The muslin allows it to breathe and mature producing a beautiful rinded cheese with a unique and complex flavour. Each truckle of cheese is turned daily as they mature, to guarantee consistency of flavour. Simply a very lovely farmhouse cheddar.

Quickes have been nurturing the family farm at Newton St Cyres for almost five centuries - and in these ancient fields their carefully bred cows turn lush Devonshire grass into the perfect milk for cheese making. Crafting magnificent flavours from the land is what they do, season after season: their artisanal cheesemakers use all their senses to discern the subtle shifts that mark out a good cheese from an exceptional one, creating flavour only traditional clothbound cheddar can deliver.
