We are absolutley delighted to receive a GOLD award from the World Cheese Awards! We partnered up with Cashel Blue Farmhouse Cheesemakers to create this beautiful cheese. A total of 3472 cheeses were tasted from 41 countries, judged this year in Bergen, Norway.
The organic milk for this blue comes from our farmer Fintan Rice from his single herd of cows based in Fethard, some 15 km from Cashel Blue Cheesemakers. His herd comprises of an unusual breeding mix of Montbeliard, Friesan and Norwegian Red cows. Milked only once a day, the resulting milk is particularly rich, sweet and creamy. Handmade in open top vats, the Cashel Blue curd from this organic milk is so rich that the vat cannot be filled to capacity, otherwise it would be too heavy to be cut and stirred by hand. If you are a blue cheese lover, this one is particulary good and one we are very proud of.
