Caerphilly is the only traditional cheese associated with Wales and the "Gorwydd Caerphilly" is one of the most authentic versions of this cheese.

Todd Trethowan revived this wonderful raw cows’ milk treasure and used to makes it in Wales until recently. Now the production moved across the border to Somerset.

Under the natural velvety-looking rind you will find crumbly but still creamy texture with milky and lemony notes in flavour and a slight earthy after-note.

Enjoy Gorwydd Caerphilly with wheat beer or fruity white wines.

Customer quote "It was good to be reacquainted with Caerphilly (Gorwydd). I have not seen Caerphilly for years. Lovely texture and enjoyable medium strength. Once started, needs to be eaten quickly (Not difficult)."

Due to the relatively small scale of our cheese and condiment producers, occasionally some cheeses and condiments may be unavailable and we will have to substitute them with similar products. Please state in the notes on the Cart page, if you do not wish to have any substitutions.
