Hegarty’s Cheddar

5.5011.00

Traditionally made Irish cloth-bound cheddar from Co Cork aged for one year. Firm texture, nutty relatively mild, but still cheddary piquant flavour tones. Brothers Dan and John Hegarty are the fifth generation of Hegarty dairy farmers they make their cheddar using traditional methods; milling and salting the curds by hand and wrapping the cheese in muslin and lard. This gives a cheddar with a distinct earthy flavour and a really pleasant slightly crumbly texture. Younger wheels can have a lactic/ lemony flavour.
