Staff at Campbeltown Creamery had some brie-liant news after bringing two prestigious cheese awards back to Argyll.

The creamery, owned by First Milk, triumphed at the 30th annual World Cheese Awards in London, standing out from the crowd as more than 3,000 entries were judged in a single day.

The Creamery was awarded a coveted silver award for its smoked cheddar, as well as a bronze for its Mull of Kintyre truckle.

‘World Cheese Awards are judged against a very tight marking criteria,’ explained First Milk CEO, Shelagh Hancock.

‘Cheese is awarded a gold, silver or bronze award only if it is found to be an exceptional example within its category, so to come away with two awards for cheese made in Campbeltown is exceptional.’
