Do you seek the exceptional? This 25 Year Old Cheddar isn't just cheese - it's a work of art. This limited edition cheese is not to be missed. It's smooth, sharp, and bursting with flavor. Spread throughout is crystallization that can only be found in a fine aged cheese. Those little crunchy bits found on and around aged cheeses (specifically our vintage Cheddar collection) are known as calcium lactate crystals. As the cheese is aged, the protein chain begins to unravel and the little deposits form. These cheese crystals don't just add extra crunch, they indicate that the cheese will have an extremely bold and complex flavor. Without a doubt, this is a cheese to savor.
