A Carmarthen Market cheese producer, Caws Teifi Cheese has swept the board at this year’s Royal Welsh Show winning five Gold awards, including Best Welsh Cheese and Supreme Champion Cheese.
“If the moon is made of cheese, then I can say that we are absolutely over the moon, because this has been the best year ever,” said John Savage-Onstwedder.
“To win five Golds, Best Welsh Cheese and overall Supreme Champion in one year at the Royal Welsh Show is something the whole of Wales can be proud of.
“This result, once again, confirms that Caws Teifi Cheese is the most highly awarded artisan raw milk cheese in the UK.
“It is a testament to the expertise and dedication of the whole team here at Caws Teifi Cheese and not in the least Mr & Mrs Williams of Cilcert Farm who produce the milk that makes the cheese. To make a cheese of such quality, excellent milk is a pre-requisite. “Therefore, credit should also go to Llaeth Cymraeg who supply the fresh milk every day we make cheese.”
Caws Teifi Cheese won the Golds for the following cheeses:
Teifi Natural, Teifi Mature, Gwyn Bach, Teifi Oak-smoked Caerphilly and Celtic Promise.
In May Caws Teifi Cheese smashed their own record at the British Cheese Awards ceremony – the annual Oscars of the cheese world – by winning the Best Welsh Cheese for a record 6th time with their most renowned cheese Celtic Promise.
Celtic Promise and other Caws Teifi Cheeses are all available at their stall in Carmarthen’s Indoor Market.
