Our famous Giant Welsh cheese advent calendar is back! With a total of over 4.2 kilograms of cheese and measuring over a metre in width, the Giant Welsh Cheese Advent Calendar is the thing of cheese super-fans’ dreams, and luckily it can still fit in your fridge!

Packed with 24 individual truckles of artisan Welsh cheese from 7 different cheesemakers, the calendar is a celebration of Welsh cheesemaking, with contents ranging from creamy soft cheeses that would rival any French Brie, to punchy, crowd-pleasing Cheddars and lip-smacking blues. 

The calendar is made up of 4 triangular boxes, each measuring 51cm in width, 32.5cm in height and 11cm in depth. These stack together to create one giant triangle, with a total width of 102cm and total height of 65cm. The individual boxes are designed to fit into your fridge. In order to keep the cheeses chilled in transit, and to allow easier storage of the 24 truckles, we supply them in insulated boxes alongside the triangular advent calendar sections, so you can load each of the triangles with cheese as you work your way through the month.

Since it’s launch in 2021, our legendary Giant Welsh Cheese Advent Calendar has been featured in countless publications and articles, including in The Telegraph, The Metro, Hello Magazine, The Independent, The Evening Standard and Wales Online. Buy your today to see what the fuss is all about!

If you’re looking for an advent calendar that will leave you with a little more fridge space, we also have a limited-edition Artisan Welsh Cheese Advent Calendar containing 6 rather than 24 cheeses.

Our advent calendars will be ready for dispatch from November 21st, so please select a delivery date of November 22nd onwards at the checkout. All cheese will have best before dates that are after Christmas.

GIANT Welsh Cheese Advent Calendar Contents:

  • Perl Las Blue 200g Perl Las is a superb Welsh blue cheese made by Carwyn Adams at Caws Cenarth in Carmarthenshire. This delicious cheese has been a Gold Medal Winner at the World Cheese Awards.
  • Black Bomber 200g The multi-award-winning Black Bomber Cheddar is a modern classic. The Snowdonia Cheese Company’s flagship cheese, it marries a rich and tangy Cheddar flavour with a smooth creaminess that lingers on the palate.
  • Ffili 200g This waxed mini truckle from Caws Cenarth contains a light and lemony Caerffili-style cheese with sea salt overtones. It’s made on the Adams family’s Glyneithinog Farm in Carmarthenshire.
  • Cenarth Brie 200g This traditional, organic, French-style Brie from Caws Cenarth has a distinctive and well-rounded mushroomy flavour which grows with age. It has a creamy white interior synonymous with a classic Brie, along with a delightfully gooey centre.
  • Tysilio 180g This beautiful goats’ cheese is made using milk from a mixed herd of Saanan, Toggenburg and Alpine goats at Cors yr Odyn farm at Dulas on Anglesey.
  • Heb Enw 120g Heb Enw has a smooth texture and delicate aftertaste. Fresh, mild and lightly salty, it’s a mellow and refreshing addition to your cheeseboard.
  • Cryf 200g This wax-covered mature Cheddar mini truckle has an intense, rich flavour and the creaminess typical of Caws Cenarth cheeses.
  • Angiddy 150g Angiddy is an award-winning soft cheese by Brooke’s Dairy, a small family farm in the Wye Valley. Angiddy is mould-ripened and similar in style to a Brie or Camembert.
  • Red Storm 200g A fairly recent addition to the Snowdonia Cheese Company range, Red Storm is a strong and creamy vintage red Leicester. This cheese is typically aged for 18 to 21 months, creating an intense flavour and refined texture.
  • Harlech 150g A strong and creamy Cheddar blended with horseradish and parsley, Harlech has herbal notes and a peppery finish.
  • Beechwood 200g Made by the world-renowned Snowdonia Cheese Company, Beechwood is a subtle, naturally-smoked cheese with a gentle, nutty flavour.
  • Perl Wen 200g One of Wales’ best loved soft cheeses – along with its equally loved Cenarth cousin, the blue Perl Las – Perl Wen is a glorious and unique cross between a traditional Brie and a Caerffili.
  • Organic Halloumi 200g This semi-hard, slightly salty unpasteurised cheese is fantastic when grilled or fried, as these cooking methods give it the perfect combination of crispiness and bounce.
  • Bouncing Berry 200g A mature white Cheddar blended with cranberries, this cheese is deliciously creamy, light and fruity. Moreish, with a subtle sweetness, this cheese has won a Silver medal at Nantwich International Cheese Awards.
  • Caws Preseli 200g This soft, mould-ripened cheese from Pant Mawr Cheeses is mildly tangy and fruity, with a rich flavour and distinctive straw colour.
  • Truffle Trove 150g Truffle Trove blends Snowdonia’s smooth and creamy Cheddar with a delicate black truffle from Italy. The rich earthy notes of truffle work beautifully with the powerful Cheddar to create a mouth-watering combination.
  • Black Sheep 150g Black Sheep, a firm ewes’ milk cheese in a wax truckle, is one of the latest varieties created by Caws Cenarth in Carmarthenshire.
  • Tintern 150g Tintern, a mature, creamy Cheddar blended with onions, fresh chives and shallots, is mouth-watering and irresistibly moreish.
  • Ffetys 120g A beautiful alternative to Greek feta, its fresh, lemony taste has won Ffetys a Gold True Taste award. Try it crumbled into a salad or whipped up into a creamy dip.
  • Smoked Heb Enw 120g Smoked Heb Enw combines the smooth texture and delicate aftertaste of regular Heb Enw with the depth that comes from smoking over sustainably-sourced oak.
  • Drewi Sant 200g Drewi Sant is washed with mead to give it a fruity tang and rich flavour. It has a medium-firm texture and is a beautiful addition to any cheeseboard or picnic hamper.
  • Ruby Mist 200g A mature Cheddar with a warming hint of brandy and Port, Ruby Mist is a silky smooth, sophisticated cheese from Snowdonia Cheese Company.
  • Y Fenni 150g Made from Cheddar spiked with beer and wholegrain mustard, Y Fenni really packs a punch. A great addition to a ploughman's lunch or melted over sourdough.
  • Smoked Cerwyn 200g This beauty from Pant Mawr retains the creamy texture of the original Caws Cerwyn but has a deeply savoury tang, having been cold smoked over oak from sustainable forests.

To ensure your advent calendar cheeses remain chilled on their journey and to help them fit into your fridge more easily, we pack the cheese truckles in our branded boxes with ice packs and wool insulation, rather than putting them inside the calendar. The calendars arrive pre-made, alongside the box of chilled cheeses, so all you have to do is follow the simple instructions to put the cheeses inside the calendar at the beginning of December.
