A large 900g truckle of Deluxe Cheddar from Black Cow, made using the milk of cows that graze the fields surrounding their West Dorset farm. Matured for 12 months in a thick black wax, this cheese has an intense and rich flavour with a delightful crumbly texture. After nearly 200 years of successful cheese-making on his family farm, West Dorset dairy farmer Jason Barber decided that he was going to do things a little different. With cheese production still a significant part of the business, Jason’s efforts, like many of our Barbury Hill producers, have turned to championing sustainability by avoiding unnecessary waste. While the curds are used for cheese-making, the whey, a by-product of the cheese-making process, is used to create pure milk vodka. Not something you come across every day! Pair the cheese with a measure of their award-winning Pure Milk vodka, (also available on Barbury Hill) and uncover the creamy flavours of both.
