2022 Champions of Cheese Awards - Our Winners !

2022 Champions of Cheese Awards - Our Winners !

April 28, 2022


Standing out from the crowd, we were awarded 13 medals, including two Golds in the original New Zealand category for our Drunken Windsor Blue and Vintage Five Forks. 

A gold medal first for our Drunken Windsor Blue! This aromatic cheese is created by soaking Windsor Blue wedges in a sweet Irish Whisky honey liqueur, creating a fruity blue cheese with hints of honey. This cheese is available exclusively from our Oamaru Store and Cheese Bar in Wynyard Quarter, Auckland. 

Our Vintage Five Forks is a goat/cow milk blend cheese, widely recognised for winning cheese awards. The pressed cheese was awarded Gold at the 2021 NZ Champions of Cheese Awards and has won three Golds in the Outstanding NZ Food Producer awards.
