Region: Ilchester, Somerset, England
Glenphilly is produced by the Somerset-based cheese specialists Ilchester Cheese Ltd. With Glenphilly, Ilchester has managed to combine the full flavour of well matured British cheddar with the creaminess of a much younger product. Glenphilly is a pale cheddar with a mellow taste accentuated by the whiskey flavour. Add to that a hint of whisky and the result is astounding. Ilchester provides only one recommended use in their product profile and that is “cheeseboard” but this cheese could be used on a more daily basis, as a delicious sandwich topping or even in a cheese sauce.
