Menorca

Mahón Cave-aged

Weight: 250

Maturation: minimum 11 months

Cheese Type: Uncooked, Pressed hard cheese

Mahon cheese originates from Menorca, the Balearic Island between the coast of Spain and the Italian Island of Sardinia. It was awarded in 1985 with the Protected Designation of Origin (DOP) which reflects the rich history surrounding the production of this cheese on the island. Indeed, Archaeologists have found ceramic tools used for its production dating back to 3000 B.C!

It is shaped into a square using a special cotton cloth, which gives the cheese its distinct cushion shape. The cheese is then pressed, imprinting the pattern of the cloth into the cheese.

The cheese is then cave matured cheese for 11+ months. During the curing time, it is continually turned and rubbed with olive oil and paprika to form a dark rind. It results in extraordinary long flavour notes, with a sweet, aromatic taste which is low in acidity.
You can try this delicious cheese on its own, pair it with Spanish red wines or add it to a cheese board.

Store in the fridge, wrapped in cheese paper, and consume within a few weeks.
