The Cheese

Wookey Hole Cave Aged Cheddar is a traditional PDO cheddar made on the Ashley Chase Estate in the heart of West Dorset. 

The key ingredient for this unique cheddar is the highest quality rich milk sourced from dairy cows that graze the lush pastures of the surrounding countryside. The cheese is made to traditional methods by a highly skilled team of cheesemakers.  Each stage of the process is performed by hand, from the turning of the curds to the wrapping of each truckle in cheesecloth.

The Cheddars are then taken to the Somerset Caves to  mature naturally in an environment which ensures they remain mouthwateringly moist and packed full of the distinctive, earthy and nutty flavours of the Caves.
