Product Description

This hard, blended milk cheese is typical of those once traditionally found in many parts of Spain where mixed herds of dairy animals were common, and the ratios of milk type used in cheesemaking constantly altered according to seasonal availability.

The cows’ milk provided the volume, goats’ milk gave the cheese a white colour and lingering piquancy, whilst the use of ewe’s milk provided a rich buttery texture. Iberico is commonly found all over Spain today and is often substituted for Manchego because of its lower price. Queso Mahon Traditional Iberico_702016
