Blaenafon Cheddar Co, Pontypool

At Blaenafon Cheddar Co, you'll see award-winning cheeses as they mature 90 m (300 ft) underground. The family-run business offers tours and tastings of the facility--you will, of course, be able to purchase cheese to take home. The company's cheeses are all handmade, free of artificial preservatives and colorings, and suitable for vegetarians. They are also hand-dipped into colored wax to extend their natural shelf life. You'll find that many cheeses made and sold here are flavored with local whiskeys and liqueurs, which act as natural preservatives. A cheddar hamper can make an ideal surprise for someone back home, so consider picking one up at the gift shop.
