The Big Cheese

Give the gift of cheese and beer to the Big Cheese in your life!

£40.00

A perfect partnership of cheese & beer. 

Our 1.8 KG Cheddar Truckles are made in the heart of the stunning Bride Valley in Dorset, Paxton & Whitfield's Cheddar Truckles are handmade to a traditional recipe using pasteurised milk from local herds. The Truckles 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. 

Perfectly paired with a 500ml bottle of our Ale No. 93. No. 93 is a “bottle-conditioned” beer. This means that a secondary fermentation happens in the bottle due to the live yeast being left inside (rather than filtered out as it is in more commercial brands). This slows the breakdown of the compounds in the beer giving it a much longer shelf life than a filtered beer. The fermenting yeast also naturally carbonates the beer so no high pressure gas injection is needed. A superb ale of great character. Golden colour with a spicy hop character, soft fruitiness and some strength.
