Softer and creamier than most cheddars, Applewood Smoked is a semi hard cheese with a yummy smoky, tangy flavour. It’s dusted with paprika which enhances the smokiness, adds a touch of sweetness and gives the cheese a wonderful golden glow.
Applewood Smoked was first made in 1965 by the Ilchester Cheese Company and is reckoned to be Britain’s favourite smoked cheese. You’ll find it does tend to disappear very quickly and is liked by most children.
This hearty cheese needs a vibrant red and is well matched with our Chianti Riseccoli.
