Dambuster Mature Cheddar Cheese was originally produced in Market Rasen, Lincolnshire, to honour 617 Squadron who were based at RAF Scampton, Lincolnshire, during World War Two.
It was created for ‘The Dambusters Dinner’ at the Joint Services Command and Staff College, Shrivenham in 2008.
It is now made in Preston, Lancashire following the original recipe.
Dambuster Mature Cheddar Cheese is a pasteurised cow’s milk cheddar that is full of flavour, rich and creamy with a firm smooth texture. This strong cheddar has a buttery note and a long lasting creamy flavour. Covered with a distinctive black wax which adds to the longevity of the cheese, this is a must try, versatile cheese for all cheddar connoisseurs. Great with a fruit chutney or Plum Bread.
The individual cheese weighs 200g.
