Cheddar cheese, the most widely eaten cheese in the world is always made from cow's milk. It is a hard and natural cheese that has a slightly crumbly texture if properly cured and if it is too young, the texture is smooth. It gets a sharper taste as it matures, over a period of time between 9 to 24 months. Hook's Cheese company offers cheddars at different ages and flavours.
Hook's 5-Year cheddar is aged for 5 years in the curing caves at appropriate temperature and humidity that develops rich, complex flavours.
