Type: washed rind
Origin: Munster, France
Munster is a pungent washed rind cheese that takes its name from a French village in Alsace. With a sticky terracotta rind, the cheese has a soft, fine texture with a mild, creamy & slightly sweeter flavour than the aroma suggests. Matured in humid mountain cellars, Munster is washed and turned regularly to develop a sticky terracotta-coloured rind. Famous for its pronounced pungent aroma, the cheese has a smooth consistency, with a creamy, meaty and slightly sweet flavour.
