Westcombe Cheddar is a hand-crafted traditional cheddar made with raw milk in much the same way as it was by Mrs Brickell over 100 years ago.
It is honoured with the Artisan Somerset Cheddar designation from Slow Food – one of only three cheeses to have this accolade.
Westcombe Cheddar has a deep complex flavour with a mellow lactic tang and long notes of citrus, hazelnut and caramel.
The texture is structured and firm, with a smooth breakdown that keeps the flavours lingering on your palate. This cheese is often called a ‘five mile Cheddar’, as you’re still tasting it five miles down the road!
