We think of Westcombe as The Godfather amongst cheddars... nothing mild about it, a real flavour explosion. We get citrus throughout with the odd pop of hazelnut and caramel. It's as traditional as they come with the same recipe being followed for over 100 years - raw milk, clothbound. It's known in the trade as the five mile cheddar - because you're still tasting it five miles down the road. For us, this is usually the point where we're turning round, heading back to Westcombe Farm and buying more.

Delivery is not only free, and not only at a set day of your choosing, but also comes in a climate control box (the only in the industry) that comes with a 48 hour freshness guarantee.

If that wasn't enough, we also add an insert that will talk you through the info on the cheeses, tasting notes and a scorecard to help you make the very most of your cheesegeek delivery!
