Description:

Quicke's have been nurturing the family farm at Newton St Cyres for almost five centuries - and in these ancient fields their carefully bred cows turn lush Devonshire grass into the perfect milk for cheese making. Crafting magnificent flavours from the land is what they do, season after season their artisanal cheesemakers use all their senses to discern the subtle shifts that mark out a good cheese from an exceptional one, creating a flavour only traditional clothbound cheddar can deliver.

Quicke’s Oak Smoked Cheddar is a well-flavoured mature cheddar, 12-15 months in age, specially selected to be naturally cold-smoked for 3-4 hours using oak chips from the farm’s woodland. The truckles are cut into 1.5Kg pieces prior to smoking as this ensures the flavour will infuse throughout the cheese. No artificial flavourings are added. The smoking process adds a new level of flavour to this pasteurized cheddar and gives an attractive deep orange colour to the cheese. It can be used for cheese boards and is perfect for grilling or grating.
