New Welsh Whisky Cheese

South Caernarfon Creameries has launched a new cheese laced with an iconic Welsh whisky.

The new special occasion cheese is aged in the Llechwedd slate caverns at Blaenau Ffestiniog, before being infused with the award-winning Penderyn whisky.

The unveiling of the new luxury cheese with a kick at the Royal Welsh Show was part of an exciting re-brand of the much-loved range of Dragon cheeses.

The new packaging features brighter colours and a crisper, more modern version of the brand’s distinctive Welsh Dragon logo.

The aim is to raise awareness of the high quality and provenance of Dragon cheese, which is made using milk sourced 100% from its Welsh farming members, and every block can be traced back to the cow.

The new packaging features a quality mark on all of the cheeses and a map shows customers the area where their cheese is sourced from in North Wales.

“Our customers really value that the cheese is made in Wales and we are supporting the farming community,” said Emma Knight marketing manager for SCC and the Dragon brand.
