Award Winning Cave Aged Cheddar

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 matured in the historic Wookey Hole Caves of Wells, Somerset, where the flavour picks up a distinctive complexity from the unique environment.

Wookey Hole Caves have existed for millions of years, and first provided a safe and comfortable place to live for the Celtic People of the Iron Age. They hold a consistent temperature of 11 degrees celcius.

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).

June 2020: "I've tried a few different cheese delivery services in the past but came across Paxton and Whitfield while browsing for others. I have to say the service, the price and of course, the cheese itself is far better than I've had from anywhere else. The cheese is individually and professionally wrapped (others seem to vacuum pack), the delivery was excellent and the cheese is just fantastic. Particularly a huge fan of the Stilton and the Cave Aged Cheddar - a big round of applause for both of those! Beautiful cheese, perfectly delivered."

Cheese weights ordered in multiple quantities are always cut as one large piece, unless otherwise requested in the delivery notes section of checkout.
