Christmas FAQs

All of our Waxed Truckles have best before dates post Christmas 2023.

All products included in any Christmas pre-orders are guaranteed to have best-before dates after Christmas 2023, with most well in to 2024.

Our Blue Stilton and Dovedale Blue can only have a maximum of 28 days date from when it is cut. This means it will often have as little as 10 days of dates, but like all our cheese, you can freeze it for eating later.

Most of our cheese will last up to 3 months if kept in the fridge. We have to include compulsory BBE dates, but this is not a true indication of the lifetime and quality of the cheese. Our Blue Cheese has a maximum allowed date of 28 days from it being made, but again this is a guide.

Yes! You can freeze our cheese for up to 12 months, without any loss of texture or taste. We suggest for defrosting, you should take it out 24-48 hours before, and for the best flavour, you should consume it at room temperature.

We know many of you will want to order your Christmas gifts in advance of the big day, but please remember your gift contains cheese! The cheese will need to stay in the fridge until you are ready to gift as leaving them out can cause them to warm up and crack the wax, potentially causing leakage but certainly ruining the gift.

For our gifting hampers, the team pack these are carefully as possible, but you should be able to take the individual truckles out to pop in the fridge without ruining the presentation of the hamper.

If you are visiting friends and family with your Cheshire Cheese Company gifts this Christmas, your cheese might be out of the fridge longer than usual. For short periods of time, your cheese should be perfectly fine.

If your cheese does become a little warm and soft, it can cause the cheese to expand and sometimes cause a hairline crack in the wax, occasionally causing some leakage to occur. If this does happen, simply wipe the cheese down and chill the cheese in a fridge for a few hours to become firm again.

Storing our Cheese

All waxed cheese typically has between 1 and 4 months best before dates, depending on the variety and time of year. The Blue Cheese can only have a maximum of 28 days from the day it is made, this means dates can be as short as 10 days or less. Please note these are guides only and the lifetime of the cheese is much greater.

Sometimes the delivery of your order can be delayed and this can cause the cheese to become warm and soft. When it does this it will sometimes expand in the wax and cause a hairline crack. This can cause some leakage to occur that is perfectly harmless, simply wipe the cheese down and chill the cheese in a fridge for a few hours to become firm again. Due to the use of salt in our cheese variety no harmful bacteria can form on the cheese. For extended periods of storage of more than a few days we recommend storage in fridge at 5°C to 8°C. Blue cheese should always be refrigerated at below 5°C or it can be frozen.

Yes and you must always store the cheese long term in a fridge for extended periods of storage of more than a few days we recommend storage in fridge at 5°C to 8°C. Blue cheese should always be refrigerated at below 5°C or it can be frozen. Refrigeration helps maintain the cheeses excellent taste and texture and also helps avoid the cheeses from swelling and the wax splitting.

Most cheese will last up to 3 months if kept in the fridge. We have to include compulsory Best Before End (BBE) dates which are not true indications of the lifetime and quality of the cheese. Blue cheese has a maximum allowed date of 28 days from it being made this is a guide and this can also be frozen.

You can freeze our cheese and it will keep for up to 12 months. Defrost in the fridge for 24-48 hours and for the best flavour consume at room temperature.

The best before dates on our cheese are a guide date only that we are obliged to add to our cheese. The reality is that our cheese will last considerably longer than the dates shown if stored sealed in your fridge or frozen in the freezer for up to 12 months.
