Believed to be invented in the 15th century near Cheddar Gorge, Cheddar Cheese was favored and much sought after by the English Royal Court. As one courtier put it, cheddars are “bespoken before they are made!” Traditionally produced in Cheddar’s birth-region, using only local milk, Dorset Drum’s complex sweet and tangy flavor is a perfect example of why fights arose in the pursuit of this medieval gastronomic pleasure.
Multi-award winning Dorset Drum is aged for 12 months and carries the prestigious PDO seal. It is named for the cheese’s original drum shape.
