Fresh from celebrating their 75th anniversary, Bothwell Cheese has won first place in two categories of the 84th Annual British Empire Cheese Show.
Perennial favourite and social table staple, their marble cheddar took top honors for the sixth consecutive year.
They also took first place in the Monterey Jack category following a second place finish last year.
“It’s been an incredible year for Bothwell Cheese and this award illustrates why we’ve been around for 75 years,” says Bothwell Cheese President & CEO Ivan Balenovic. “We have an extraordinary and talented staff, who take great pride in making the best cheese possible. It’s owing to their great work and dedication that we’ve been so successful at this prominent competition.”
The British Empire Cheese Show has been around since 1927 and is billed as Canada’s largest display of Canadian and International Cheese. Each year judges award cash and honours in 23 classes of cheddar, specialty and artisan cheese.
