Celtic Promise is a raw-milk washed-rind cheese made by Caws Teifi, on an organic family farm in the Teifi Valley, West Wales. Celtic Promise has a delicate buttery texture and a distinctively pungent aroma. It starts life as a Caws Teifi Caerphilly and is then washed twice a week for seven weeks in order to develop the cheese’s moist pink rind.
Celtic Promise has won countless awards over the years, and is one of only two cheeses in Britain to have been awarded the title of Supreme Champion twice at the British Cheese Awards. It has also been given a 3 star Great Taste Award.
This cheese is made in small wheels of approximately 550g. If you select 550g below you will receive a whole wheel, and if you select 240g you will receive a half wheel.
Caws Teifi was established by John Savage-Onstwedder and his family in the early 1980s, and over the past 40 years has become one of the most highly awarded artisan cheesemakers in Britain. It remains a small scale family business, these days led by John’s sons Rob and John-James.
