What’s it like? Crozier Blue has a rich, full and well-rounded flavour. It is gently salty with a distinctly rich creamy texture, offset by a touch of spice. The cheese has an off white interior appearance, this is typical of sheep’s milk cheese. Throughout the cheese there is a blueing often referred to as having marble-like pattern, although comparative to many traditional blues, Crozier is typically less blue. The rind, which with time can develop a film of surface mould and slight moisture is untreated and is therefore edible, it is however typically stronger and is better used in cooking.
Where’s it from? Produced by J&L Grubb Ltd with Sergio Furno and Dirk Van Den Dikkenburg, Tipperary, Ireland.
Packaging: The cheese is wrapped in distinctive gold foil as a wedge of 125g cheese.
