What’s your story? “We ripen Welsh farm cheese underneath London railway arches,” says owner Tom Harding. “Kernel Brewery is next to us and one day, after a beer or two, we tried washing Golden Cenarth in India Pale Ale.”

Why is your cheese a regional gem? “It reflects Britain’s great love of brewing and cheesemaking, and the name highlights Bermondsey’s link to washing - in the 18th century it was home to one of London’s most famous spas.”

The Grocer says: Not for the fainthearted, but those who like their cheese strong and full of character, are sure to love it. A stinking stunner.
