Wookey Hole Cheddar is a PDO Cheddar handmade from rich local milk in Dorset and then transported to the Cheddar Gorge caves, where it is gently allowed to mature in damp, humid conditions. Four hundred years ago there was no refrigeration and the historic Wookey Hole Caves near Wells in Somerset were the ideal place to mature cheeses. The temperature is a constant 11°C all year round, and the high humidity is also ideal to stop the cheese drying out during its maturation storage. Ashley Chase Estate in Dorset is one of the few farms where authentic handmade Cheddar cheese is still produced.

Wookey Hole Cheddar PDO is a rich, nutty, flavoursome typical cheddar – perfect to enjoy with a fruity chutney and an ale.

PDO stands for “Protected Designation of Origin,” a product label established by European Union law in 1992 to protect the names of regional foods.

Please note all cheeses are hand cut, therefore the weights listed are approximate. We work very hard to cut them as accurately as we can!
