Saval is a rich, pungent and tangy raw-milk cheese made by Caws Teifi Cheese in Ceredigion. Like Celtic Promise, another of their famous cheeses, Saval is rind-washed, which gives it its gorgeously strong aroma and creamy but dense and savoury taste.
John Savage-Onstwedder started producing his organic raw-milk cheeses in West Wales in the early 1980s. Teifi is now a thriving family business, and John has recently branched out into organic gin (featured in our gin and cheese hamper!)
Like most of Teifi’s other cheeses, Saval has won a truly impressive range of awards over the years, including Golds at the World Cheese Awards, and the James Aldridge Memorial Trophy for the Best British Raw Milk Cheese, often seen as the highest accolade in British artisan raw milk cheesemaking.
Saval is made in 2kg wheels, so all portions are cut fresh on the day we send them out.
