Coolattin Cheddar is a type of Irish cheese produced by Tom Burgess for over twenty years on his farm in West Wicklow. The cheese speciality lies in the early morning raw milk sourced from cows grazing on clover-rich pasture only. Tom’s motto is ‘from pasture to cheddar the same day’, which ensures that only the freshest milk is used to produce the Cheddar.Coolattin is traditional handmade cheddar coated with red wax that gives it a characteristic appearance. In contrast is the hard, pale yellow interior with occasional fissures, very typical of artisanal cheddars. The flavour is sweet and fruity when young and develops a more complex nutty note as the cheese ages. It pairs well with Bordeaux Blends and Cider.
