Ardsallagh Smoked Cheese
Ardsallagh Smoked Cheese is an Irish cheese produced by Jane and Gerard Murphy from the Ardsallagh Goat Farm. It has been 10 years since the couple have been making high quality, handmade, natural dairy products at their farm located near Carrigtwohill, close to Cork city in Ireland.
Their smoked cheese is a semi-firm to hard cheese made from pasteurised milk and vegetable rennet. The cheeses are cold smoked over beechwood for 4-7 days to lend a unique smokey flavour. The combination of goaty flavours and smokiness makes this cheese one of its kind.
The cheese develops flavour as it matures. It is mild and sweet with pronounced smokey flavour when young. As it ages, the smokiness is underlined by a distinct nuttiness.
Available in 250g, 2kg, 3kg, 11kg wedges and wheels. Pairs well with a Pinot Gris.
