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.

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