Derby, say the British Cheese Board, has a smooth, mellow texture with a quite mild, buttery flavour. It is quite similar in taste and texture to Cheddar and ripens at between one and six months.

I've not been able to locate any existing maker of Derby Cheese, though its cousins Sage Derby and Little Derby continue to flourish.
