A traditional Caerphilly and classic British territorial. Made by the Trethowan Brothers at their dairy in Somerset using a Victorian presses to press the cheeses into shape, and allow them to ripen for longer than most of Caerphilly's - between 2-3 months.
During the maturing process, every Gorwydd round has to be turned daily to ensure even maturing and in particular, an even development of the soft, velvety rind. Gorwydd Caerphilly has been regularly awarded Gold and Super Gold at the World Cheese Awards, and been voted Best British Cheese. They have also won Gold awards at the International Cheese Awards and we continue to receive high ratings in the Great Taste Awards.
Described as 'three cheeses in one' with an edible mushroom tasting rind followed by a creamy breakdown layer leading into the soft crumbly delicate centre.
