Rock Star, a distinctively rich cave-aged Cheddar, is matured to perfection within Welsh slate caverns in the heart of Snowdonia. It has a deliciously savoury aroma, while its texture is irresistibly smooth and creamy with the occasional crunchy crystal – a highly desirable characteristic of aged cheeses. On the palate, its complex umami flavours are as deep as the caverns it is aged in. Sweet caramel notes then lead to a long finish with a savoury tang. Encased in cobalt-coloured wax to celebrate the rocks of these historical mines, it is the star of any cheeseboard.

Available in 150g, 1.5kg.

Vintage Cheddar Cheese (Milk)

Vintage Mature Cheddar Cheese (Milk)

Our cheeses are famous for their jewel-coloured wax casings – not only do they look good, but they keep the cheese tasting delicious, retain all-important moisture and help preserve it, too. Here are our recommendations for preparing waxed cheeses to serve.

First, remove the cheese from the fridge and allow it to reach room temperature before cutting into it. This softens the wax slightly and cheese also tastes better when it’s not fridge-cold.

Next, remove the sticky labels. To make a good, clean slice, make sure you always use a very sharp knife.
