An ancient, pasteurized sheep’s milk cheese from Onetik, a cheese dairy farm located in the small village of Macaye at the foot of the Pyrenees Mountains in Basque Country. For over 30 years Onetik has collected milk from Berria Cooperative farmers to make authentic and delectable cheeses using the traditional methods handed down by their ancestors.
This cheese is made exclusively with milk from local (to the maker) breeds of sheep (Manech and Basco-Bearnaise). It has a succulent and complex flavor, developing notes of hazelnut and caramel as it matures. Incredibly buttery and creamy, we suggest pairing with a slice of tangy quince paste.
