12 Days of Cheesemas
‘Tickler’ English Cheddar
We’re going across the pond on Day 2 of our Cheesemas specials. This English Cheddar is fun and playful just as the name suggests. Our cheese-monger recommends that you buy one block for you and one to share, you’ll understand why once you taste it. The Tickler is also a seasonal cheese that Glorioso’s only carries for the month of December.
This cheese is special to the Taw Valley region of the UK and is made from cow’s milk that is pasteurized before the cheese making process begins. The milk is collected from the milk fields of the Devon region which lends a very special taste to the cheese. The second state of the processing is what makes this cheese so flavorful and intense, the blocks are left to mature for over a year-and-a-half.
Tickler English Cheddar is best paired with a bitter blond or farmhouse ales but it is also quite delightful with a Merlot or Chardonnay. On your cheeseboard try adding some jams, chocolates, or caramels to play with this tangy cheddar. We recommend the Glorioso’s Blueberry Lemon Thyme jam from our collection of cheese pairing preserves (did we mention that the jams are now available as a gift set? All 6 flavors housed in an adorable wooden tray).
The Tickler is now $7.49 until Christmas, what a deal! Come in and grab some before it’s gone (until next December).
