A mild, hard crumbly cheese; salty and moist with a lemony tang.
A proper Caerphilly is creamy at the edges and moist and crumbly in the middle. Famously salty, sour and moist, the cheese was originally sold in the Welsh market town of Caerphilly until production died out in World War 2. Fortunately for us it was revived by artisan cheesemakers so we can enjoy it today. Westcombe Dairy is a small artisan dairy in East Somerset which makes traditional Cheddar and other West Country cheeses using unpasteurised milk.
