The cheese, made by High Weald Dairy in Horsted Keynes saw off over 4,000 other entries to win Super Gold.
The winning entry was Seven Sisters Sheep milk cheese with a coating of Hebridean seaweed and they picked up the award at the ceremony at the International Convention Centre Wales in Newport in 2 November.
The judging panel was made up by some of the world’s leading experts in cheese, featuring cheesemakers, cheesemongers, buyers, chefs, retailers, and writers. The cheeses were scored on aspects such as the appearance of the rind and paste, as well as the cheese’s aroma, body, and texture, with the majority of points awarded for flavour and mouthfeel.
Named after the picturesque Seven Sisters pn the South Coast, the semi-soft Seven Sisters cheese is made using organic sheep milk.
Mark Hardy from the dairy said, “We are delighted to have won a Super Gold award at this year’s World Cheese Awards for our Seven Sisters, proving it to be one of the top 98 cheeses in the World!
“Having the seal of approval from so many experts in the cheese world is priceless for a cheesemaker. At the dairy, we put everything we have into our cheeses and only strive to make the best for our customers, so winning this trophy proves it’s all been worth it."
