PAYS BASQUE

UNPASTEURISED

TRADITIONAL RENNET

An unusual cheese from the mountain region of Pays Basque. Loosely translated from the Basque language as 'colours of the sky,' this is a semi-hard cheese with the blue veins parsleyed through the dense rich mellow cheese. The natural brushed rind is quite dry when young, but as the cheese ages becomes a little moist, giving the cheese an extra tangy richness. Frequently described in the cheese room as our most complex blue, the range of flavour is impressive – from sweet butter, to farmy straw, to lemon zest, pepper, and bosky minerality. This is a rare treat as blue cheeses are not normally made in this area.
