Blue Rathgore is a vegetarian cheese that was produced from 1989 until 2000 by the Woodside Dairy in Finaghy, Belfast, Northern Ireland. Made from goat’s milk, the cheese had a crumbly and moist texture with a slightly spicy taste. It had a creamy consistency and a blue green mold with a pleasant buttery flavour. The period of ripening took six months. Blue Rathgore was used for cheese courses, sauces, dips, and dressings.
