Cashel Blue Irish Farmhouse Cheese
by Kerrygold. Product of Ireland.
Cashel Blue is a semi-soft, creamy Irish farmhouse cheese, distinguished by its round, full flavor and signature tang. Its buttery color is punctuated by characteristic blue veining. Lovingly crafted by hand on the same 200 acre farm in Ireland that it has been since the early 1980's by the Grubb Family. Cashel Blue Cheese is made with milk from grass-fed dairy cows that graze on some of Ireland’s most lush and nutrient rich pastures. Cashel Blue has earned gold many times since 2009 at the International Cheese Awards held annually in Natwich, U.K. Cashel Blue’s robust flavor profile makes it a worthy companion to grilled steak, ripe pears or figs and an absolute godsend for leafy green salads. All-natural Cashel Blue Cheese is a true masterpiece of Irish dairy.
This cheese doesn't leave the facility for 6 to 10 weeks of age and has a pleasant, firm and creaminess with a blue character and a mouth-watering tanginess. By 3 months of maturation your Cashel Blue will have broken down to a richer, fuller and rounder yet not overly strong flavor.
Ingredients: pasteurized cow's milk, salt, calcium chloride, vegetarian rennet, microbial cultures. CONTAINS: MILK

This blue cheese is much more robust than the typical blue cheese.
Pairs perfectly with a meaty red wine.
