Tunworth takes top gong at British Cheese Awards

Hampshire Cheeses’ cows’ milk Tunworth has been named Supreme Champion at the British Cheese Awards for a second time.

The camembert-style cheese, which is made by Stacey Hedges and Charlotte Spruce, has previously taken the prize in 2006.

Hampshire Cheeses’ spruce-wrapped Winslade was named Best New Cheese while Lynher Dairies, the creators of Cornish Yarg, claimed the Best English trophy with a new cheese called Stilhians.

Other winners included Cashel Blue (Best Irish) and the washed rind Francis from James’s Cheese (Best Semi Soft).

Yorkshire’s The Courtyard Dairy, run by Andy Swinscoe (formerly of Fine Cheese Co), was named Best New Cheese Retailer.
