An award winning cheese! Keltic Gold is a pungent, washed rind cheese with a creamy smooth texture and round sweet flavour. Local cider is used to dip and scrub the cheese 3 times a week which gives an appley overtone and the distinctive edible orange rind.
World Cheese Awards Gold Winner 2014 and winner of Super Gold at the World Cheese Awards 2012, Gold at the British Cheese Awards 2012 and 2011, Two Star Gold Award at the Great Taste Awards 2011 and Gold at the Speciality Cheese Nantwich International Cheese Show 2011.
Based near Bude, North Cornwall, Whalesborough Cheeses began making their award winning cheese in 1999 in a disused stable on Whalesborough Farm using their own milk. Nowadays they no longer milk their own cows but use local dairy farmers to supply milk for their new purpose built modern dairy and maturing rooms. Being sustainable they use no plastic in the wrapping of the cheeses and the whey from the cheese is fed back to their pigs or is anaerobically digested to produce methane. All the electricity on the farm is provided by Norton Barton's 330kw wind turbine.
Every cheese they sell allows them to donate money each month to charity. They currently support Macmillan Nurses, Marie Curie Cancer Care, Parkinson's UK, Blue Cross Dogs Trust, IFAW, PDSA and Brooke Hospital. Why not take a look at their other cheeses, the Cornish Smuggler and the Trelawney?
