Mahon is the iconic cheese of Menorca with a distinctive square shape and rounded edges. The vibrant, orange coloured rind is created by rubbing it with pimenton and olive oil as it matures.
The semi-hard, sometimes crumbly texture has a fruity, fresh and creamy aroma complemented by rich, savoury and yoghurty flavours.

Quesos Torralba, founded in 1939, is a third generation company that was started simply to store Mahon cheeses which it sold on to local businesses; gradually they began to add value by ripening them and now they specialise in buying young, artisan produced, Mahon cheeses and ageing them to various states of maturity.
