(Blue, unpasteurised sheep’s milk, vegetarian rennet)
Lanark Blue is hand made in a farm-house creamery from unpasteurised ewe’s milk, and it matures slowly in the cool moist atmosphere of old stone-built cheese rooms. The taste is slightly sweet and green-blue veins spreading through the cheese are the result of mould having been sprinkled into the milk vat before the cheese is curdled. After that the cheese is moulded by hand and allowed to mature for three months.
