Davidstow has been making Cheddar in the heart of Cornwall for the last 60 years. It is this expertise and skill, combined with milk produced by generations of local farmers, that creates the two subtle and intricate Cheddars, the perfect additions to your festive feasts.

Davidstow Cornish Crackler extra mature cheddar is matured for 19 months. The result is an intense yet pleasant sweet flavour with bursts of flavour due to the naturally occurring crunchy crystals that the cheese acquires with age.

Wine and food matching expert Fiona Beckett, partners this cheese with some ripe fruit or soft tannins red wine, the Quinto do Crasto, made from the same grapes as port, goes really well with mature cheddar like the Crackler.

Davidstow Cornish Classic mature cheddar is matured for 14 months and has a perfectly balanced rich, long-lasting, full and ‘nutty’ flavour with a creamy texture and pale glow. Fiona suggests trying an oaked Chardonnay with this rich mellow Cheddar For a great match.
