Bringing Christmas cheer to any cheese lover, the whole Mature Cheddar Truckle from Quicke’s is an unforgettable gift and the grandest of additions to a festive feast. A miniature version of the classic Clothbound Cheddar, weighing in at 1.8kg, this award-winning wheel is more than a match for any cheese knife, made with the extended family in mind.
Hand-crafted using milk from Quicke’s world-famous grass-fed cows, this rich and buttery cheddar is matured for 12-15 months at Home Farm in Devon, delivering outstanding depth of flavour, from brothy to grassy to caramel notes. Taking the palate on a journey from the rind to the heart of the truckle, this cheeseboard heavyweight is ready to put cheddar centre stage this Christmas.
Other mini truckles available from Quicke’s include the territorial twosome, Devonshire Red and Double Devonshire. A West Country take on Red Leicester, Devonshire Red is a vibrant, full-flavoured cheese, bringing together all the hallmarks of this British favourite with the distinctive characteristics of clothbound cheese. Its elegantly mellow counterpart, Double Devonshire, pours Quicke’s world-class milk into the traditional Double Gloucester recipe, delivering a true taste of Devon with a long-lasting finish.
