Dambuster Cheddar was originally produced in Market Rasen, Lincolnshire, to honour RAF 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 by Carron Lodge in Preston, following the original recipe.
Dambuser Cheddar is a pasteurised cow’s milk cheddar that is full of flavour, rich and creamy with a firm smooth texture. Covered with a distinctive black wax which adds to the longevity of the cheese, this is a must try, versatile cheese for all cheddar conoisseurs. Great with a fruit chutney or fruit bread.
The individual cheese weighs 200g.
