Westcombe Cheddar is a hand-crafted traditional cheddar made by Wesrcombe Dairy in East Somerset. Today it is honoured with both European PDO status and the much rarer Artisan Somerset Cheddar designation from Slow Food, as well as numerous awards.
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!
