About Howling Hound

This black dog – a distant cousin of the trusty truffle hound – roams wild on Somerset hills and is a good omen, protector and guide to all those who see it.

Bold and rich, this deeply flavoured cheddar’s character comes from real black truffles for a truly special experience. Indulgent and luxurious, this cheddar is overflowing with rich and moreish flavours you would expect from delicious fresh truffles.

Our 200g Howling Hound Black Truffle cheddar also won Gold at the prestigious International Cheese Awards 2019. This indulgent organic truffle cheddar is the first time since our World Award-winning Oak-Smoked Vintage Organic Cheddar that we’ve added anything to our famous cheddar range, but we think that this cheese is worth the wait.

And we are delighted to announce that the Howling Hound Black Truffle Vintage cheddar was awarded a SUPER GOLD at the World Cheese Awards 2022
Out of the 4,000+ cheeses entered, less than 100 were awarded the coveted Super Gold award. And out of those only 11 were from the UK. Thank you to all the amazing Guild of Fine Food judges for awarding us this top accolade, we’re in esteemed company!

Why not browse our full black truffle cheddar range for more delicious products and gift ideas?

We make our cheddar using a traditional 90-year-old recipe and we mature it for up to 12 months. After that, we select the very best cheese to make it into one of our award-winning truckles. Then the European Black Truffle is added – you’ll see the flecks of truffle throughout the cheddar. It has a rich depth of flavour with a smooth texture. All of our cheese is made using pasteurised milk and is certified organic by the Soil Association. They contain no artificial preservatives, and they are suitable for vegetarians.



The Howling Hound Black Truffle cheddar is enrobed in our stunning black wax to protect it and give it a longer shelf life. This special food-grade wax is a by-product of refining petroleum and would otherwise go to waste!

Our cheese comes packaged in an attractive gift box made from recycled cardboard that is also recyclable.

Cut into your truckle in Godminster style by chopping off the top and tucking in! Carefully score around the top and lift the lid to enjoy the delicious cheddar inside.

Truffle cheddar FAQs

What is truffle cheese?

Truffle cheddar is a type of cheese that has been flavoured with truffles – a culinary delicacy that grows underground on tree roots and is seen as a delicacy by many. In terms of taste, truffle cheddar has a unique nutty and earthy flavour.

When you blend creamy vintage organic cheddar with truffles, you end up with a delicious cheddar cheese that has flecks of black truffle throughout.

How to eat truffle cheese

Truffle cheddar can be enjoyed as it is, melted over some of your favourite meals or added to a cheese board to bring even more taste to the party. In terms of pairings, truffle cheddar can be enjoyed with sparkling wine and more simple sides such as plain crackers or bread so that you can enjoy the aromatic taste of the truffle cheddar itself.

Is truffle cheese vegetarian?

Yes, Black Truffle Vintage Organic Cheddar (and our other cheese products here at Godminster) is suitable for vegetarians.


If you have any other questions about truffle cheddar or any of our other products, please feel free to get in touch and a member of our friendly team here at Godminster will be happy to help.


All of our organic cheeses require refrigeration.

In order to enjoy your Godminster organic cheddar cheese at its best, allow it to come up to room temperature an hour before serving to bring out all the lovely flavours.

If there’s any left afterwards then replace the wax as best you can, wrap it in cling film (or cheese paper if available) and refrigerate.
