MEET THE MAKER
The Snowdonia Cheese Company was established in 2001 with the aim of creating a luxury range of Welsh cheeses, and found immediate success at farmers’ markets. Within months Snowdonia cheeses were being stocked by fine food delicatessens and grocers, and the colourful wax-coated truckles are now widely recognised, popping up on restaurant menus the world over and winning numerous awards in prestigious cheese competitions.
Set in North Wales amid the rugged beauty of Snowdonia, Snowdonia Cheese Company uses only the finest milk and additional ingredients to produce a distinctive range of cheeses. Options range from Black Bomber – an extra-mature Cheddar – through to Red Devil, a classic Red Leicester warmed with a hit of chilli. Other choices include the award-winning Pickle Power – a mature Cheddar with a pickled onion tang; and Ruby Mist – another mature Cheddar with warming hints of Port and Brandy. The recently launched range of chutneys – including fig and apple, and spiced tomato and vodka – make wonderful additions to the cheese board.
