Cabot Clothbound is a special batch of Cabot Creamery cheddar aged by Jasper Hill Farm at their special calibrated vault cellars. The cheese is aged for 10-15 months, during aging period it is constantly brushed, turned, and monitored for quality.
Clothbound is traditional natural-rind, bandaged cheddar made from pasteurised cow’s milk. It has a crumbly texture and nutty aroma with a deeply savoury and slightly tangy flavour with caramel sweetness to the finish.
To enjoy Clothbound, pair it with a charcuterie, apple jelly, or a rich chestnut honey. It goes well with an off-dry sparkling apple cider, hoppy ale, or an oaked Cabernet Sauvignon.
This artisan cheese has won many medals including gold at 2014 World Cheese Awards.
