What is Vintage Cave-aged Cheddar?
Vintage Cave-aged cheese is cheese that has been aged or ripened in a cave, whether natural or man-made. Caves were used in mediaeval cheese making because they provided a consistent, chilly environment with high humidity, which was ideal for ageing cheeses. High humidity aids in the preservation of the cheese's moisture content, while cool, steady temperatures allow the cheese to ripen slowly and evenly. Caves also make it easier for the cheesemaker to use mould or bacteria on the cheese rinds to generate bloomy and washed-rind kinds.
