Golden Cenarth is a soft, rind-washed cheese with a string of awards to its name, including Supreme Champion at the British Cheese Awards 2010 and Best British Semi-Soft Cheese in 2016. The cheese is washed with cider, which helps to give it a pungent savoury flavour with nutty overtones, and a springy but smooth texture.
Golden Cenarth was first made by accident by Carwyn Adams on the family farm in Carmarthenshire. Carwyn noticed that an out of date piece of Caerffili had started to redden and the rind was beginning to break down and become softer. He found that by nurturing this process the cheese would develop a distinctly smooth and powerful flavour.
