Smoked Clothbound Cheddar
Handcrafted using heritage starters by expert cheesemakers, this exquisite cheddar is clothbound and naturally matured, typically for 9-12 months.
A rich and buttery cheddar that offers an outstanding depth of flavour, from brothy to grassy to caramel notes. Cold smoked using oak chips from trees grown on Quicke's 450-year-old Devon estate for a subtle smoky, buttery flavour.
With over a century's experience between them, the Quicke's families team of expert cheesemakers understand that what they do is an art. Using all their senses, they individually craft every cheese by hand. The recipes they follow date back generations; each batch of cheese is started using a culture that has remained unchanged for decades.
At every stage of its creation they strive for greatness, and it all begins with the land. The red Devon soil, the gentle rain and warmth of sunlight give lush pasture to feed their cows. Quicke's use a carefully managed grazing system to ensure the cows get the best lush grass.
Grass has a lot good things going for it: feed cows on grass, and their milk contains more conjugated linoleic acid, CLA, (good for everything) and the beneficial ratio of Omega 3 oils and Omega 6. That rich yellow colour in the milk comes from carotene (vitamin A) in grazed grass, too. Quicke's milk is a true expression of our the Devon terrior, making it the most incredible ingredient for their outstanding clothbound cheddar.
