Extra mature Shipcord

C

This locally produced cheddar-style cheese is made by Susan Richards at Rodwell Farm Dairy in Baylham, Ipswich. Unpasteurised milk from the farm’s own dairy cows provides its unique nutty flavour and long complex finish. The curds and whey are scalded at high temperatures to create its robust texture and give length to the flavour. Vintage Shipcord is then matured for approximately twelve months, developing acidity and tang as it ages. Read more
