Davidstow Cheddar

Cornwall provides the home of Davidstow Cheddar cheese: a prize-winner at regional, national and international cheese exhibitions. One of Britain’s best selling cheddars. Only milk from Cornish farms is used.

Davidstow cheese was formerly produced by Dairy Crest but is now owned by the Canadian holding company Saputo.

Davidstow Mature Cheddar

Typically matured for 14 months with a perfectly balanced, rich, long-lasting, full and ‘nutty’ flavour Davidstow Mature has a creamy texture and pale glow. A special cheese to be enjoyed everyday, it’s best in a classic Ploughman’s lunch with ham off the bone, some Cornish pickle and a fresh, crusty white loaf.

Davidstow Extra Mature Cheddar

Davidstow Extra Mature is typically matured for at least 18 months. It is intense, yet pleasantly sweet, with added layers of complexity and concentrated bursts of flavour due to the naturally occurring crunchy crystals that the cheese acquires with age.

Davidstow 3 Year Reserve Special Vintage

The pinnacle of the Davidstow range, as the name suggests, this exquisite addition is matured for at least 3 years. Taking its time to mature and develop a deep combination of rich & creamy flavours and crumbly, flinty texture. This is the ultimate cheddar in the Davidstow collection and boasts an unrivalled taste experience.

    Pathetic customer service, having benefitted from free advertising and promotional exposure on BBC Rick Stein’s Cornwall, this company cannot deliver their “perishable” goods via Royal mail to Scotland. How perishable is 5yr old cheddar for god sake, 2 day service with Royal Mail perfectly adequate for many many many other retailers selling perishable goods, all you get is a curt response form the office “we can’t deliver”. Pity you didn’t think about it when you accepted the free promotion TV coverage.

      We are, of course, simply a listing website promoting Cornish food and drink. You should direct your complaint to 0800 023 4766 or use the email form on the website of Davidstow cheese. That said, it is very common for deliveries of foods within the UK not to include off-shore locations or the far reaches of Scotland. You should always check the Terms and Conditions of the seller. Their terms – and I hope it can be agreed that their terms are theirs to set – say: “We are currently only able to deliver to an address in Mainland UK: England, Wales & Scotland excluding Highlands & Islands. Due to the perishable nature of our goods we cannot currently accept orders for delivery to the Scottish Highlands & Islands, Northern Ireland, Isle of Wight, Isle of Man, Channel Islands or International addresses.” If your Scottish destination is outside the Highlands & Islands it would certainly be worth contacting them to clarify. If the location is within that excluded area, it might be worth offering to pay the additional delivery charge (their standard charge is a subsidised flat rate) or, because the cheese is so widely available across the UK, you could purchase some from a local retailer and send it off direct.
