Irish Green Wax Mature Cheddar
Our Green Waxed Cheddar is produced by Tuxford and Tebbutt from pure Irish milk. The milk for this "bitey" cheddar is taken from cows grazing in southeast Ireland, an area traditionally known as "The Garden of Ireland". Here, the winds blow in from the Atlantic, depositing rain throughout the year, providing the perfect growing conditions for lush grazing. This environment produces rich, creamy milk that is perfect for cheese making. Our Irish Green Wax Cheddar is aged for a minimum of 12 months, but may be aged longer, because it is only when that distinctive, strong Irish cheddar flavor is ripe that Tuxford and Tebbutt's master grader will deem the cheese ready for sale. The cheddar is then cut into blocks and covered in green wax, giving the cheese a distinctive Irish appearance.
Made from pasteurized cow's milk.
