Origin: La Mancha Spain
Manchego is the most popular ewes’ milk cheese in Spain. The milk comes from the local breed of Manchega sheep and the shape and outer rind of this cheese is quite distinctive and originated from the traditional grass-woven moulds that leave a zigzag impression on the sides of the cheese, as well as a small wooden board that is used to imprint a wheat pattern on the top. Manchego is sold at various degrees of maturation and varies in flavour according to age and every cheese has a certificate of authenticity attached. Our 12 month Manchego has a firm ivory coloured interior. Very pleasant and buttery flavour, slightly spicy and with a great richness of aromas.
