Barber's 1833 Vintage Reserve Cheddar cheese has been crafted in Somerset since 1833. It is matured for a minimum of two years to provide a cheddar cheese that is powerfully intense and complex with an exceptional depth of flavour. Vintage Reserve has a creamy texture and smooth finish, containing naturally occurring crystals that give it a distinctive crunch. Refined sweet notes balance out its tangy sharpness.
The Barber family have been making cheddar since 1833, which makes them the oldest surviving cheddar-makers in the World!
Barber’s 1833 cheddar is made on Maryland Farm in Ditcheat, Somerset, only 13 miles from the village of Cheddar itself and protected under the PDO certification. As well as being artisan cheese makers, the Barber family are also farmers, looking after 2000 cows over 2500 acres, producing milk for the dairy.
