Perl Wen Organic
Made by Carwyn Adams on his family farm in Carmarthenshire in cast iron mounds, some dating back to 100 years. Perl Wen is a glorious and unique cross between a traditional Brie and a Caerffili. Caws Cenarth in Carmarthenshire use their farmhouse Caerffili recipe as a starting point for Perl Wen (the Welsh for ‘White Pearl’), which gives its soft centre a fresh citrus flavour with a hint of sea salt.

One of Wales’ best loved soft cheeses, Perl Wen, meaning White Pearl in Welsh, is a glorious and unique cross between a traditional Brie and a Caerphilly cheese
A traditional farmhouse Caerphilly recipe is used as a starting point for Perl Wen which gives its soft centre a fresh citrus flavour with a hint of sea salt.
The cheese was developed by Carwyn Adams on his Carmarthenshire family farm. The Carwyn’s family have been cheesemakers for six generations, and his parents, Thelma and Gwynfor, were key figures in the Welsh artisan cheese revival in the late 1980s.
Concentrating originally on traditional Cearphilly and other Welsh recipes, Carwyn has now developed an unrivalled range of uniquely Welsh cheeses including this and also its cousin, Perl Las; which is a rich blue veined cheese and the delightful rind-washed Golden Cenarth
Perl Wen cheese can be enjoyed at any age, unlike French Brie styled cheeses, this style of cheese will never ooze, it’s not in its nature, but it will soften to a bulge as it ages and its flavour deepens.
