Celtic Promise is an award-winning, Caerphilly type washed-rind organic cheese made in Ceredigion, Wales. After the cheese is hand made on the farm, it is matured at Eastside in East Sussex as this has the perfect conditions. Because the cheese is hand-made by the Teifi cheesemaker, each batch will vary slightly from the next.
An unpasteurised, semi-soft cheese made from cows' milk, it is uniquely shaped like a dumpling and ripened in cider. Beneath the sticky orange-red rind and fruity smell, there is a beautiful cheese with a soft buttery texture, pungent aroma and a delicate, mild flavour.
Celtic Promise is one of only two cheeses in Britain to have been awarded the title of Supreme Champion twice at the British Cheese Awards.
Celtic Promise is best enjoyed on a cheeseboard - you can find a range of the other cheeses that we stock here. The cheese is suitable for vegetarians.
