Our flavor profile:
2 YEAR VINTAGE RESERVE
A creamy cheese with a distinct bite and smooth finish.
The Barber family are the sole guardians of the last traditional pint starter culture. This pint starter culture comes from the local area in the south west of England, meaning you have a cheddar that is made in the home of cheddar with a culture that has been developed in the local area, it does not get more original than that! The attention to detail is the secret that drives the Barber family to make the best cheese; and is unrivaled by any other producer in the world. With this attention to detail and the use of the traditional pint starter cultures you will not find any unsavory ‘farmy’ flavours and the complexity of structure and taste is the best there is.
As well as cheese makers the Barber family are also farmers, looking after 2000 cows over 2500 acres producing milk for the dairy.
You will not find a better
more authentic cheddar anywhere in the world.
