Awards 2016

At South Caernarfon Creameries, we are revelling in a collection of ‘British’, ‘Global’, and ‘International’ awards and a wide range of our products have been recognised as amongst the cream of the crop.

Our own Dragon range features prominently in the awards haul and with a variety of cheese scooping awards which include Mature and Vintage Cheddars as well as Vintage Cheddar with Leek. Our signature Cavern Aged Cheddar has also been recognised. This cheese is aged 500 feet below ground in the caverns at the Llechwedd Slate Cavern in Blauneau Ffestiniog and took a top award at the Global Cheese Awards. Other traditional territorials also received recognition such as Double Gloucester and our authentic Welsh Caerphilly.

As well as cheese, our traditional salted Welsh butter has also received several awards, including a top award at the British Cheese Awards.

Awards are important. They provide an independent assessment and point of reference for the quality standards of a range. The majority of awards focus on taste and quality and having received awards for a wide cross-section of products provides further, independent, verification that our entire range is exceptionally high quality

Accolades have been far-reaching from the Global Cheese Awards, Mid Somerset Show, Bakewell Show, International Cheese Awards, British Cheese Awards and the Royal Welsh Show…with more likely to be announced later in the year.
