It should have got a Gold…

Manxies who attended the Homecoming or recent NAMA and GWAMS events will know how delicious Manx cheese can be. Well, the Garlic and Chive Mature Cheddar cheese won bronze medal at this year’s British Cheese Awards. The flavoured cheese is one of many produced by the Isle of Man Creamery in Tromode.

Gordon Smith, the creamery’s sales and marketing director, said: ‘This is fantastic news for the creamery. Winning a bronze medal at the British Cheese Awards is a tribute to the craft and dedication that our cheesemakers put into making our range of award winning cheeses.’

The British Cheese Awards, created in 1994, were held in Cardiff Castle last month. Here.
