SKU: N/A Category:

Teifi Seaweed is based on the Gouda-style Teifi Natural, with the addition of locally harvested seaweed. The laver seaweed adds a distinctive saltiness. As with all Caws Teifi cheeses, the seaweed variety has a mellow flavour that gets stronger with age. Consider using it as a topping for fish pie, or simply enjoy as part of a cheeseboard selection.

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.

MEET THE MAKER

Caws Teifi

In 1981, John and Patrice Savage-Onstwedder and Paula van Werkhoven left Holland to pursue their shared dream of organic farming in Wales. They soon set about making artisanal cheese using raw milk and local ingredients, and Caws Teifi is now the longest-established artisan cheesemaker in Wales – John is even known as the 'Godfather' of Welsh artisan cheesemaking.

Caws Teifi is the most highly awarded artisan cheesemaker in Britain, winning numerous first prizes and gold medals at The Royal Welsh Show, The Nantwich Show, The British Cheese Awards and The World Cheese Awards – and Celtic Promise is one of only two cheeses in Britain to have been awarded the title of Supreme Champion twice at the British Cheese Awards. In 2009, Caws Teifi's creamy Saval won the The James Aldridge Memorial Trophy for the Best British Raw Milk Cheese – the highest accolade in British artisan raw milk cheesemaking.

Caws Teifi has truly put Welsh cheesemaking on the world map – and John credits the lush Welsh pastures with creating cheeses of such distinction. Today the cheese business and its new sister company, Da Mhile distillery, are run by the Savage-Onstwedder sons, John-James and Robert.
