Ilchester™ was born in 1962 when founder Ken Seaton discovered how to keep his Cheddar truckles fresh on the bar of his hotel in Somerset - put beer in them! Tasting rather good, Beer Cheese was created, causing an outrage with 10 million teetotallers boycotting it - even though they needed to eat 20lbs to consume the equivalent of one pint of beer! With more cheeses to create, Ken set up The Ilchester™ Cheese Company in the picturesque village of Ilchester™ and never looked back at his hotel business.
