Hegartys Cheddar 200g

About This Cheese

Flavours of this great Irish cheddar range depending on season and age. Wheels are frequently nutty and relatively mild, but still possess that essential cheddar tang.  Young wheels can show more lactic, grassy and fresh citrusy flavours. Hegarty’s Cheddar has a firm texture but maintains a nice balanced creaminess making it a favourite in the Irish cheese family.

Story

Traditionally made Irish cloth-bound cheddar from Co. Cork aged for one year. 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.

Producer

Hegarty’s Cheese dairy farm is located in Whitechurch Cork. Their 150-acre farm is home to their Friesian Dairy cows who exclusively supply the milk for their incredible cheeses. The family take on the wholistic approach of complete traceability from field to finished cheese. Dan Hegarty is quick with a joke and always a great producer to work with, full of knowledge and a good story. They understand the value of slow sustainable growth of their farm and cheese business. They gradually grew and perfected their Hegarty’s Cheddar, before developing Templegall, a landmark alpine-style irish cheese.
