“A truly artisan Cheddar from Somerset with a deep and complex flavour. Cheese has been made at Westcombe since the 1890s and they now remain as one of the last three traditional producers of Somerset Cheddar. They have the status of PDO, but the Calvers are one of the last three families, along with Jamie Montgomery and the Keens, to make traditional Artisan Somerset Cheddar.” Winners of Best Cheddar at The British Cheese Awards 2017.
