When it comes to taste, the people’s vote gave the golden thumbs up to The Black Farmer Sweet Mature cheddar at the hugely competitive Royal Bath & West National Cheese Awards last week.
The ‘People’s Choice’ category was judged by a panel picked at random from visitors to the show. The panel was asked to give their comments on taste, appearance and overall presentation and the GOLD award was presented to the entry gaining the most points – The Black Farmer.
“This has to be one of the most reassuring awards to receive! To know that the general public has tasted my Sweet Mature cheddar and voted it head and shoulders above the competition is very great praise indeed,” says Wilfred Emmanuel-Jones, The Black Farmer.
“The Black Farmer Sweet Mature brings real flavour differentiation to the shelves. As with all my other products, great flavour is what sets them apart from anything else available. This cheese has the depth of flavour you expect from a mature cheese, but with a delicious sweet finish, rather than the generic flavour often associated with mature cheddar.”
The Black Farmer Sweet Mature Cheddar uses 100% British milk and is made using the traditional craft of ‘cheddaring’ by hand-piling and turning the curd.
The Black Farmer Sweet Mature cheddar is currently available in southwest Asda stores and Ocado on-line.
