Traditionally, shepherds made this small cheese from the leftover curd set aside after milking their ewes. Today Istara® P’tit Basque is still hand-made from pure ewe’s milk, using the same traditional methods established by local shepherds centuries ago. P’tit Basque boasts the dramatic heritage of the Basque region a land of deep valleys and steep mountains. It is a proud region between France and Spain where culinary tradition is very much alive. Made with 100% pure sheep’s milk, P’tit Basque is aged for a minimum of 70 days. The Spanish influence on this cheese is noted by its resemblance to Manchego, but its flavor is milder and more delicate. P’tit Basque has a distinctive aroma of sheep’s milk, and a smooth, sweet flavor with a nutty finish. Its creaminess is unique for a semi-hard cheese.

This green waxed cheddar is prodcued from pure Irish milk. It is aged for a minimum of 12 months to obtain the distinctive strong Irish cheddar flavor. The cheddar is then cut into blocks and covered in green wax, giving the cheese a distinctive Irish appearance. Pair with a full-bodied ale.
