This rich and nutty cheese is widely regarded as the king of Cheddars. Montgomery Cheddar is made by hand seven days a week to ensure the freshness of the milk and uses the same strains of starter culture first employed when the family started cheese making 70 years ago. Once made, the cheese is wrapped in cloth and matured for a minimum of 12 months. A multiple award winning cheese including Supreme Champion at the 2004 British Cheese Awards and Best Cheddar at the 2006 British Cheese Awards. In 2009 Mature Montgomery's Cheddar won a gold medal at the World Cheese Awards.
