The most famous cheese in the range of Quickes is the Traditional Mature Cheddar. By slowly maturing a muslin-wrapped truckle for a year, we allow it to breathe, producing a beautiful rinded cheese with a unique and complex flavor.
The Quicke family have been farming near the village of Newton St. Cyres in the South West of England, for over 450 years. At Quickes Traditional, they make award-winning traditional cheeses using milk from our dairy herd. Every truckle is handmade before being wrapped in muslin that allows the cheese to breathe as it matures, forming the old fashioned rind that is the hallmark of traditional cheddar.
This handmade traditional matured cheddar is matured from at least 9 months and the result is a rinded cheese with a unique and complex flavor; a flavor that you need to try to be able to describe it. One thing we can say; it is good, very good and the awards the cheese receives are a tribute to its quality.
We cut and wrap this gourmet cheese in wedges of 1 pound and 8 ounces.
