Godminster’s Heart-Shaped Vintage Bruton Beauty Organic Cheddar is a multi-award-winning organic cheese, created in the heart of Somerset and enrobed in distinctive burgundy wax. Made from the finest organic milk, it undergoes a traditional maturation process for a minimum of 12 months, resulting in a rich and full-bodied taste. The cheese boasts a smooth and creamy texture with a tangy, yet mellow, profile. The Godminster Cheddar Heart is not only a delicious indulgence but also a beautiful centrepiece for cheese boards and special occasions. Its eye-catching heart shape and artisanal quality make it a true symbol of love for cheese connoisseurs.
The concept of a heart-shaped cheese product is one that has over 500 years behind it, with the story beginning in Normandy, and with a lesser-known, soft-white, heart-shaped french cheese known as Neufchatel. The tradition of molding Neufchatel cheese into its famous heart shape actually came during the Hundred Years War, wherein some of the female occupants of the small village of the same name, began to fall in love with their English occupiers! Being the home and the namesake of this rich and creamy cheese, the maidens of Neufchatel naturally begin to use the cheese as gifts, fashioning them into heart-shaped gifts to give to their loves.
