Pennard Ridge Red is a smooth and mellow hard goats cheese from Somerset. The striking orange colour, unusual for a goats cheese, comes from Annatto, a food colouring from the seeds of the achiote tree which is also used to colour cheeses such as Red Leicester. The addition of Annatto doesn't affect the flavour but just gives it a distinctive and attractive colour, a great differentiator from most other goats cheeses which are strikingly white.
Pennard Ridge Red is an award winning cheese:
- Bronze Medal at the British Cheese awards 2014.
- Silver Medal at the World Cheese Awards 2011.
- Bronze Medal at the British Cheese Awards 2007.
