Welsh Say Cheese

Welsh Say Cheese

Best Welsh Cheese and the Dougal Campbell Trophy was awarded to Llandyrnog Creamery for its Mild Cheddar which impressed the judges with its exceptional depth and roundness of flavour for such a young cheese.

Among the multiple Welsh winners were the Pembrokeshire Cheese Company, which received ten medals, and Llandyrnog Creamery, which scooped seven medals including two golds. There were gold medals too for Teifi Farmhouse Cheese's Celtic Promise and Caws Mynydd Du's Dragons Back.

The awards dinner was held at the National Museum of Wales on the eve of the Great British Cheese Festival (September 26/27) which, for the second year running, was held in the grounds of Cardiff Castle. Thousands of visitors attended the tasty two-day Festival, which kicked off British Cheese Week (September 26 - October 4).

The Festival featured ‘Britain's Biggest Cheese Market', a whole host of master classes and demonstrations by some of Wales' top cheesemakers as well as activities such as Cheese Skittles and Cheese Tossing.
