Miniature Cloth Bound Cheddar

Paxton's Cave Aged Cheddar Pounder is distinctively fruity and has a nutty bite. It has underlying earthy notes absorbed from its maturation period in Somerset caves, and a very dense consistency that is satisfying in the mouth.

In the heart of the stunning Bride Valley in Dorset, Paxton & Whitfield's Cheddar Pounders are handmade to a traditional recipe using pasteurised milk from local herds. The pounders are then taken and matured in the historic Wookey Hole Caves of Wells, Somerset, where the flavour picks up a distinctive complexity from the unique environment.

This is a specialist cheese which is made to exacting specifications regarding geography, milk source and recipe, earning it a coveted Protected Designation of Origin (PDO).

Please note the cloth should be removed before eating. This can easily be done with a knife.
