Pantysgawn Cheese

Pantysgawn Cheese is a soft, creamy cheese made in Wales from pasteurized goat's milk.

It has a salty taste with a bit of sourness that reminds some people of lemon. A fresh cheese, it is sold in a cylindrical shaped roll, with no rind or crust. It doesn't have the "animal" smell to it that some European goat's cheeses do. No animal rennet is used in making the cheese.

It's sold in logs of 150g or 1 kilo. You can also get it rolled either in crushed black peppercorns or in mixed herbs.

History Notes

The cheese was first made by Tony Craske at his farm called "Pant-Ysgawn" farm near Abergavenny, Monmouthshire, Wales. Craske then expanded the operation to a proper cheesemaking facility, naming the business Abergavenny Fine Foods Ltd.

Language Notes

You will also see the name of the cheese spelt "Pant-Ysgawn."
