Clothbound Cheddar
Clothbound Cheddar Ingredients

Clothbound Cheddar is a rare tradition for American cheesemakers. It’s a process that requires equal parts quality ingredients, patience & alchemy. Our head cheesemaker has perfected this process and in 2018, our Clothbound Cheddar took home the 1st place ribbon in the only national cheese competition (ACS). Enjoy!

Available Online in approximately 1/2 lb wedges.
(Weights may vary since each wedge is cut by hand.)

How It's Made

Fresh cheese curds are molded into wheels, wrapped in cloth bandages, and coated in sweet butter. After a minimum of 13 months in a carefully controlled cave environment, Face Rock’s Clothbound Cheddar presents with a rich & exquisitely flakey texture that delivers a nutty, complex flavor.


Our Clothbound Cheddar has all the sharpness of our Extra Aged Cheddar but the flavor complexity is amped up by the technique used for aging. Bandage wrapping allows the cheese to breathe more during the aging process which compounds the flavors and presents a rich and exquisitely flakey texture.

Don't be afraid to experiment with flavors when pairing with this luxurious cheddar. It can certainly hold its own against other strong flavors and complements both sweet and savory foods.
