Paxton & Whitfield's very own cheddar, cloth bound and matured in natural caves in Somerset to give a distinctive fruity and nutty bite.
Between the Dorset Downs and the West Dorset Heritage Coast in the Bride Valley, Paxton & Whitfield's Cave Aged Cheddar is handmade to a traditional recipe using milk from local herds to give a fruity flavour and smooth texture. It is then taken and matured in the historic Wookey Hole Caves of Wells, Somerset for up to three months, where the flavour picks up a distinctive complexity from the unique environment.¬†
Paxton's Cave Aged Cheddar is distinctively fruity and has a nutty bite. It has underlying earthy notes absorbed from its maturation period in the caves at Wookey Hole, and a very dense consistency that is satisfying in the mouth.
