Island Brebis

Island Brebis is a whole raw sheep's milk tomme that is aged for 3-6 months. During its maturation period, the wheels are washed, brushed, and rolled to develop a natural golden brown rind. It has a smooth, creamy, dense paste that is sweet, nutty with herbaceous tones. The pleasant complex flavours of the cheese pair well with IPAs, wines and hard ciders.
