Cheese Culture



Cheese Type

Mahón is produced on Menorca, the outermost of the three Spanish Balearic Islands. Curd is piled in the centre of a cheese cloth and the square corners are knotted and twisted together. The cheese is pressed and twisted for a number of days giving the cheese its typical "cushion" shape.

The hard rind, which carries the imprint of the cheesecloth, is rubbed with oil and paprika creating a vibrant orange colour.

Mahón is sold at various stages of maturity. When young, the texture is smooth and supple and the aroma is sweet and fruity. It can be matured for up to ten months when it will exhibit a hard, slightly granular texture with a sharp, salty tang.
