Tipplers

Our Tippler range also includes Port Cheddar and Whisky Cheddar cheeses!

Sage Derby

Derby is one of England’s oldest and most famous cheeses. Finely chopped sage was added to this wonderful cheese as early as the 17th century, as it was thought to carry health benefits. Nowadays, here at Ilchester, we carried on adding the sage to get that extremely light and uplifting flavour. Try this cheese grated over a salad or enjoy it on top of peppercorn crackers.
