Trethowan's Gorwydd Caerphilly (pronounced Gor-with) is a mature Caerphilly made to a traditional recipe using raw (unpasteurised) milk. Despite being considered a Welsh cheese there is a long history of Caerphilly being made in the West Country ..... and this particular recipe originated in Somerset at the beginning of the 20th Century.
Whilst Cerphilly was traditionally sold young, this cheese is matured in their Dairy for 2-3 months allowing a natural rind to develop, adding depth and flavour to the taste and texture. The centre is firm and moist with a fresh lemony taste, whilst the creamy layer beneath the rind is richer and more savoury.
Cow's Milk, Unpasteurised
