Tangy with creamy, buttery texture. Mountain blue cheese wrapped in maple leaves. A lot going on.

The Valdeón Picos Blue is a pasteurised blue cheese made from a blend of approximately 90% cows' and 10% goats' milk, and animal rennet.

The Picos Blue is a semi soft blue cheese created in the Picos de Europa mountains of northern Spain. 

Bold and salty, the uniqueness of this cheese lies in the manufacturing process. This includes a long maturing in cold, damp cellars to produce a granular texture and blue mould filled cavities. Similar to Roquefort, with an equally powerful aroma.

It is delicious by itself , as part of a classic Spanish cheese board, or used in salads, stuffings, quiches, with red meat, on toasts, and in dips and sauces. It is also a great cooking cheese with a nice melty texture.

It has a Protected Geographical Indication (PGI), meaning it is made to strict criteria using high quality ingredients. 

Taste profile: Fresh and earthy aroma with hints of blue. A buttery, melt in the mouth texture, with nutty, mushroomy, sometimes spicy flavour.



INGREDIENTS Pasteurised cow's MILK (80% min.), pasteurised goat's MILK (10% min.), salt, lactic cultures, calcium chloride, rennet, Penicilium roqueforti. Made in Spain using Spanish milk. STORAGE & CARE Keep refrigerated below 8°C. Once opened, consume within 7 days.
