Caerphilly is a variety of cheddar that is generally sold in cylinders or blocks. It gets its name from the village in Wales where it was first made and was the traditional lunch of Welsh miners. Made from unpasteurized cow milk and aged anywhere from 8 to 14 days, this pure white cheese is pressed to give it a firm yet crumbly and flaky texture. It has a fresh clean aroma and taste with distinctive honey notes.


Caerphilly cheese appears crumbly and off-white inside a pale ivory rind which is covered with a fine, powdery flour (rice).


Moist, semifirm texture.


Mild and tangy.
