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.
You can also get it in flavoured versions.
The cheese was first made in 1981 by Tony Craske at his farm called “Pant-Ysgawn” farm near Abergavenny, Monmouthshire, Wales. Our story.
