Cashel Blue 250g
A mellow, subtle and creamy blue cheese handmade on a family farm in County Tipperary
Cashel Blue is a semi-soft blue cows’ milk cheese and is unique for being Ireland’s first farmhouse blue cheese. It is all made on the dairy farm of Jane and Louis Grubb near Cashel in County Tipperary and was first produced in 1984. They researched the Irish market at the time and found nobody making farmhouse blue cheese. The cheese they consequently started to produce was softer than existing cheeses in the UK market and so they let it remain soft and created their own niche in the market.
Cashel Blue cheese starts as a firm textured, crumbly consistency but with ripening it takes on a soft, creamy, almost spreadable texture. As it matures, the flavour also changes, growing stronger and becoming spicier. The rind is very distinctive with a covering of grey and pink moulds.
