We are delighted to share the news that our Gorwydd Caerphilly has been named Best British Cheese at the World Cheese Awards!
Our Organic Caerphilly stood out from the crowd asentries from six continents were judgedat thePalacio deExposiciones yCongresos in Spain on Wednesday 3 November to be voted Britain's Best Cheese and 7th Best Cheese internationally.
Run by the Guild of Fine Food, these are the biggest awards for cheesemakers around the world and to have achieved Best British Cheese for the past two years is something that we and our fantastic team are really proud of. This is our 25th year of making Gorwydd Caerphilly. It has been our life’s work and we have put our heart and soul into it, so for it to be recognised as the Best British Cheese by such an esteemed group of judges means the world to us.
In another highly successful year for us our Pitchfork Vintage Cheddar also took joint 14th place. This comes following both of our Organic cheeses being named in the Top 16 two years ago, when Pitchfork Cheddar claimed the title of Best British Cheese.
World Cheese Awards 2021 result:
- Best British Cheese - Gorwydd Caerphilly
Ranking in World 16 Cheeses:
- 7th place - Gorwydd Caerphilly

We think that our organic, unpasteurised milk promotes a fuller and more rounded depth of flavour and it’s just fantastic that the complexities of these more subtle cheeses are rewarded. Thank you to all the judges and everybody involved in organising this year's World Cheese Awards.
