Rockfield by Velvet Cloud Sheep's Milk Cheese 200g
The BEST Irish artisan cheese, according to the Artisan Cheese Awards in 2022, it is also a is a 2019 World Cheese Award Winner and one of only of a very small number of sheep’s cheeses made in Ireland.
This is a semi-hard pasture reared sheep's cheese with a natural creamy golden rind. This Irish sheep's cheese is aged for a minimum of 12 weeks, the ivory-hued pate is supple and creamy, often with small eyes (holes), slightly crumbly and becomes firmer as the cheese ripens. Made with pasteurized sheep's milk, it is creamy and buttery in the mouth with slightly sweet undertones. If kept in an air-tight container the shelf life on Rockfield by Velvet Cloud sheep's cheese is at least four months. Although we haven't met anyone yet who has managed to keep it for that long, as it's a bit too tempting. This 200g piece is perfect on a cheese board, or simply to treat yourself to something really special on its own.
