Red Dragon with Mustard Seed
Creamy Cheddar carefully blended with Wholegrain Mustard Seed and Ale providing a wonderful bite without being overpowering.
Texture & Flavor
Red Dragon is a buttery and spicy cheese with plenty of bite, but is not too hot, not so overwhelming that it would overpower a dish.
Red Dragon is a smooth, firm, tasty Welsh Cheddar with wholegrain mustard seeds and Welsh ale, coated in a bright red wax.
This gourmet cheese combines the subtle sharpness and depth of natural mustard with the mild, piquant taste notes of the Welsh ale and traditional Cheddar.
The mustard seeds give Red Dragon its marvelous flavor and its texture. The brown ale makes the cheese both moist and tangy resulting in a one-of-a-kind flavor and refined taste.
Red Dragon is aged for three months, made from cow's milk, and is vegetarian.
Red Dragon is a great addition to any cheese board and makes for a fantastic burger topping or grilled sandwich filling.
Other suitable pairings might include a full-bodied wine such as Shiraz or Zinfandel.
BackgroundRed Dragon forms part of a ‘Heraldic’ range of specialty blended cheddars. By World War II, cheese production in Wales had nearly ceased; run out of business by large cheesemaking factories in England.
Fortunately there has been a revival of old ways by a new generation of cheese-makers creating fine cheeses such as Red Dragon, also known as Y-Fenni.
Availability, Ordering and Shipping
Sourced from creameries all over the world many of our cheeses are from small family-owned, alpine farms and only produced in limited quantities or at one-time each year. We take most of their production which goes straight out to our club members.
Our cheeses are sold in an 8 ounce cut. When ordering more please use “quantity” in multiples of 8 ounces i.e., for one pound order a quantity of 2.
Because our cheese club members take precedence we may have limited inventory of some cheese products.
If you order a cheese that is unavailable our customer service team will contact you with delivery details or a substitute cheese product.
Your cheese selections are individually wrapped in sustainable, recyclable, low environmental impact food wrapping which will extend the life of the cheese in your refrigerator.
The cheese is then carefully packed in an insulated container with “cool” ice packs and sealed in its shipping box to be sent via overnight air arriving fresh and cool at your home or office.
We search the world for fresh, natural cheeses made from milk produced by family-owned, free grazing animals and crafted by artisan, quality-focused cheese makers. Each year we choose only the best cheeses to pair for our wine and cheese club members to enjoy.
