Ilchester® is found in the heart of the cheese-making West Country where Cheddar cheese was born. Surrounded by miles of lush green grass, some of the best cheeses are crafted in this pocket of England, by people who really know a few things about cheese. The majority of the cheeses that we use come from within 12 miles of us.
Wherever possible we use the best quality local ingredients with a great deal coming from Somerset and the surrounding counties, giving you the best tasting cheeses to enjoy time and time again.
Our product development team are passionate foodies and have made cheeses with so many different ingredients including honey, blackcurrants, peppers, olives and lemons! We pride ourselves on the quality of our cheeses – the original cheese innovators, Ilchester® loves to challenge, surprise and delight you with an ever-evolving collection of British speciality cheeses.
We just can’t keep a good idea to ourselves!
