The Flavor Experience

Traditional cheesemaking techniques mixed with the latest technology and high-quality milk make for a Manchego-style cheese you'll easily get hooked on. Only you can prevent eating this delicious smoky goodness.

The Story

Originating in the Basque country, this is a cheese from humble means. When made in the tiny, mountain huts of Northern Spain, cheesemakers would store the cheese close to their fireplaces in order to aid the drying of each wheel. However, with no chimneys, the cheese would absorb the smoke of the fire, adding the signature smoky flavor and a beautiful hue to the rind.

Usage Tips

Chorizo's best friend, and a must with a farmhouse saison. Put it on a crepe for a woodsy breakfast, or top with spicy mustard and crushed kettle chips.

Straight From the Monger’s Mouth

"When screamed aloud, this cheese name becomes a battle cry of epic proportions. Isn't that reason enough to eat it?" — Leslie U., CCP & Princess of Pairings
