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.

An extra few month's of maturing does wonderful things to this rich, rounded cheddar, producing a complex balance of flavours. Every truckle is handcrafted and cloth-bound by the team of nine expert cheesemakers. Matured to perfection for 18-21 months, Quicke’s Extra Mature Cheddar delivers layers of mouth-watering flavour; earthy, tangy and intense with hints of almond and hazelnut, lingering long after eating.

A classic companion to cabernet sauvignon, it is also great for cooking with, bringing distinctive Devonshire richness to the dish.
