A delicious cheese with a growing reputation
Once upon a time, Black Bomber cheese was a little-known Cheddar that only true cheese lovers were familiar with. However, over the years its incredible taste, versatility and uniquely sticky feel have helped it to become one of the first wheels on any cheeseboard. A favourite for after-dinner platters it is often served alongside a carefully selected glass or red wine or port.
Initially soft and creamy at first bite, Black Bomber cheddar soon releases a much deeper, more intense salty flavour. This makes it popular with not just your average cheddar lover but also those who like their cheeses to have a bit more intrigue and character.
Whether you choose to keep things simple and serve on a cracker (pepper ones are thought to be best by those in the know), use within a cheesy scone, melt into Welsh rarebit or even incorporate into a punchy pizza with salami and caramelised onion, there’s no bad way to enjoy a slice (or more) of Black Bomber.
Having won awards at regional, national and international level, this Snowdonian cheddar has quickly become a star of the cheese world and, if you haven’t already tried this black wax covered gem, now’s the perfect time to find out why.
About our cheese range
Our range of West Country artisan cheeses are from small, specialist cheesemakers. Dorset and Somerset have some of the very best producers whose cheeses are lovingly crafted using milk produced by wonderful local dairy farmers. However, we are not scared to look further afield when we see cheese producers that share our passion for quality, provenance and sustainability.
As a result, we are proud to be stockists of this Welsh favourite and offer it alongside the many meat and deli options you can find across our website.
Black Bomber is made by the Snowdonia Cheese Company, a business established in 2001 and with many awards to its name for products such as its Redstorm, Beechwood and Green Thunder cheeses. What we like most about this company is that it utilises the finest ingredients and brings the same attention to detail in the cheese world as we do with the products from our own farms.
