60 Month Reserve – Waxed Ingot

(£28 / kg)


Out of stock


Previously only available to try at a select handful of Michelin star restaurants, this cheddar will bring instant wow-factor to any meal.

For true connoisseurs, our 60 Month Special Reserve cheddar amplifies the complex flavour and texture found in our 40 Month Reserve. With a more pronounced tang on the palate, tempered by silky, creamy notes, Davidstow Special Reserve delivers an unparalleled taste experience.
Typically matured for 60 months and presented in a distinctive black wax.

Designed to deliver a highly crystalline texture; this is due to the formation of naturally occurring calcium lactate crystals which are found in high quality aged cheddars. These appear as white flecks, developing further as the cheese matures, enhancing both the character and the mouthfeel of the cheese.

Davidstow Cheddar is made with exacting care at our multi-award winning creamery in the Cornish village of the same name. Inspired by our location, nestled between the moor and the sea, our recipe has been meticulously crafted for almost 70 years, ensuring every bite is never less than perfect.

  • Exquisitely complex with a jagged, flinty texture and long-lasting after-taste
  • Made in the Cornish village of Davidstow since 1951
  • Made in Cornwall from 100% West Country milk
  • Typically matured for 60 months
  • Royal Warrant (By Appointment to Her Majesty The Queen Suppliers of Dairy Products Dairy Crest Limited, Surrey)
  • Suitable for vegetarians

Recycling Information

The wax we use to protect and present our cheese is not recyclable.

Other Information

Our waxed products may look irregular in shape; this is because unlike many waxed cheeses on the market they are not extruded. Rather they are cut directly from a larger block of our cheddar and then waxed. This ensures we maintain the characteristic ‘flinty’ texture our cheese is renowned for. Due to the age of the cheese it will not always cut to a uniform shape and can therefore result in a more ‘rustic’ finish.
