Capriny is a triple cream, soft cheese made from pasteurized goat's milk and cream. It has a mild, light and delicate paste that is creamy and nutty in flavour. It is available in other flavours: herbs and pepper.

The different flavours of Capriny are said to be invented by an old lady who was familiar with the culinary uses of plants and used them to create different cheeses with spices and herbs.
