Godminster scoops four International Cheese Awards

The International Cheese Awards saw Somerset-based cheese maker Godminster win four awards.

The team from Bruton, Somerset, amassed two gold awards for their Oak-Smoked Vintage Organic Cheddar, a silver for their renowned Vintage Organic Cheddar and a bronze for their handmade Organic Brie with Garlic & Chives. It is the first time Godminster has entered its Brie into the awards.

Peter Andrew, CEO of Godminster, says:”We’re absolutely delighted with these awards, this is a record haul for Godminster. Winning an International Cheese Award is the stamp of excellence any cheese maker aspires to and we’re proud to be taking home this number of prizes.”

The double gold for the Oak-Smoked Vintage Organic Cheddar comes on the back of a silver award for the same cheese at the British Cheese Awards in June.

Peter Andrew believes this is the start of something special: “Our Oak-Smoked Cheddar has incredibly loyal fans. It is one of only a handful of naturally smoked cheddars in Britain. We’ve had great feedback on it from our customers both face to face and on our social media channels. It’s terrific to see it being recognised on both the British and international stages.”

The success in the prestigious awards comes ahead of the Great Taste Awards next month, where Godminster has historically achieved some impressive results.
