Cheyney's Fortune

This sumptuous 1kg truckle of our Cheyney’s Fortune Oak-Smoked Organic Vintage Cheddar is made using the same cheese as our Vintage Bruton Beauty organic cheddar before being delicately cold-smoked over sustainably-sourced oak chippings for the perfect smokey aroma. This delicious smoked cheddar has won many awards, perhaps most notably Gold at the International Cheese Awards in 2022, taking home the cup for the Best Smoked Cheese.


How we make our Oak-Smoked Cheddar Cheese

We make our cheddar using a traditional 90-year-old recipe and then mature it for up to 12 months until it develops a mouth-watering tangy taste and creamy texture. After that, we select the very best cheese to make into one of our award-winning truckles. We then smoke it for up to 10 hours to give the cheddar a rich depth of flavour with a smooth texture.

The Cheyney’s Fortune Oak-Smoked Cheddar is enrobed in our 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.


Smoked Cheddar Cheese FAQs


What is smoked cheddar cheese?

Smoked cheddar cheese is cheese that has been specially treated by smoke-curling. Using a 90-year-old recipe, we mature ours for up to 12 months, then smoke it for 10 hours to give it the perfect flavour.

What goes well with Oak-Smoked Vintage Organic Cheddar?

Smoked cheese can be added to many dishes (see our Recipes section for more inspiration), giving your meal a smoky tanginess with every bite. Whether you are a burger lover or enjoy a fine evening of wine and cheese accompanied by chutneys and delicious crackers, our smoked cheddar will be a great addition to your menu. For the ideal wine pairing, we recommend a bottle of Le Petit Cabouche – Vin de Pays de Vaucluse or a Cotes du Rhone red. 


How long does smoked cheddar cheese last?

We guarantee at least 20 days of life on our Cheyney’s Fortune Oak-Smoked cheddar, as long as it is kept chilled. Once opened, it should be kept refrigerated in an airtight sealed container or wrapped tightly in cheese paper, beeswax wrap, or similar.

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.
