Once called “Grand Opening Cheddar”, this cheddar made its debut at Face Rock Creamery on their Grand Opening, May 8th, 2013. After it celebrated its first birthday, the name changed to 12-month Aged Cheddar and it’s been delighting the crowds with its balanced flavor ever since!
Creamy with a slight nutty flavor, this is a true medium cheddar – full of creamy flavor, yet without the bite you’ll find in sharper versions. Low in moisture, this cheddar is a fantastic all-around cheese. It slices, grates and melts like a dream and tastes great on its own as a quick snack, or as a cheesy compliment to your favorite foods.
How it’s made: Cheddar curds are created and pressed into 40-pound blocks of cheese. These blocks are then stored in a climate-controlled cave for 12 months until the cheddar achieves a medium flavor. After aging, it’s cut into small blocks and ready to enjoy.
