About Mount Leinster Raw Milk Cheddar

  • The flavour is sweet and fruity when young, and develops more complex nutty notes as the cheese ages.
  • The milk we use to make Coolattin Cheddar is special for a number of reasons.
  • We process it in the summer months when the cows are grazing fresh clover-rich pasture only which is the ideal diet for cheese processing milk.
  • We use early morning milk which is high in melatonin which aids relaxation and sleep.
  • It is pumped directly to the cheese vat, not stored or pasteurised.
  • Thus the natural goodness and flavour is preserved by our traditional cheese-making process.
  • We add beneficial Lacto-bacilli and Rennet to our milk, the curd is cut, scalded, drained & pitched. The cheddar is milled, salted and mixed by hand.
  • Following this, we place it in 40b moulds and press it for 2 days. The cheese is matured over a year at 10°C.”
  • During this time the unique combination of enzymes and proteins interacts to create a gourmet experience of aroma, texture and full flavour which develops slowly from sweet fruit to a full nutty note.
  • To get the best from Coolattin Cheddar, store it in a cool place and taste it at room temperature.
  • Produced by Coolattin Cheddar.
