Description

The Cheese

Characterful but not strong. The youngest Cashel Blue® will reach you at between 6 to 10 weeks of age and is pleasant, firm and creamy-edged with an established blue character – offset by a mouth-watering tanginess. By 3 months of maturation, your Cashel Blue® will have broken down to a richer, fuller and rounder yet not strong flavour.

With time Cashel Blue® becomes creamier and indeed more balanced in flavour as the saltiness, blueness and gentle milky elements integrate together. From 3 months a gentle touch of spice may become apparent. Cashel Blue® can age up to 6 months of age becoming increasingly unctuous in texture with age.

The Look

Cashel Blue® has a white appearance or paste as it is technically called when young turning increasingly towards a buttery yellow as it matures. Throughout this paste, there is a blueing often referred to as having a marble-like pattern. The rind, which with time can develop a film of surface mould is untreated and is therefore edible. It is intrinsic to the cheese and contributes to the breaking down of the paste, adding further flavour and complexity. N.B. the rind can taste saltier than the inner paste. Traditionally made in 1.5kg wheels (or thereabouts) and packaged in gold foil.

The story

Established in 1984, Cashel Blue® is the original Irish farmhouse cow’s milk blue cheese. Cashel Blue® is a unique creation of Jane and Louis Grubb. Developed at a time when softer blue cheeses were a rarity in the English-speaking world, Cashel Blue® truly set the trend as an alternative to the traditional and stronger Blue Stilton. Cashel Blue® does not aim to be like any other blue cheese, instead representing a style of blue cheese reflective of the people and place from which it hails.
