December Artisan Cheese Selection


Our December Artisan Cheese Selection pays tribute to some of our finest Welsh cheesemakers. Ideal for gifting, or as a festive treat, it includes generous helpings of four of our most popular artisan cheeses, including creamy Perl Wen, mellow blue Perl Lâs, savoury Gorwydd Caerphilly and full-flavoured Black Bomber Extra Mature Cheddar. And because it’s Christmas, we’ve added a FREE 125g box of The Fine Cheese Co’s fabulous crackers – usually priced at £3.50. See below for our cheese-tasting notes and product ingredients and allergens.
Please note: all of these cheeses are hand cut, so the weights given are approximate. We try hard to cut them as accurately as we can!

December Artisan Cheese Selection (available to order until 31 December)

Organic Perl Lâs (350-400g)
Made using creamy organic cow’s milk and traditional cultures to create a mellow golden cheese with delicate veining and a lingering, lightly salted blue tang. Suitable for vegetarians.

Organic Perl Wen (250-300g)
A perennial favourite, marrying the soft, mould-ripened creaminess of a classic French brie with the lactic, lemony notes of traditional young Caerphilly. Made using organic cow’s milk, it’s a real crowd pleaser – and suitable for vegetarians, too.

Gorwydd Caerphilly (450-500g)
Caerphilly is traditionally a young, fresh cheese, but this one’s matured longer – some 2-3 months – for a crumbly, lactic, lemony core that becomes more soft and mushroomy towards the natural mould rind. It’s a true artisinal cheese, handmade by the Welsh Trethowan family in Somerset, using raw organic milk from a single herd of Holstein-Friesian and Jersey cows. Deeply delicious, and a deserved multi-award winner. Made with animal rennet.
