More...

This petite disc of sheep milk cheese is washed with a brine solution as it ages so that it develops a deep flavor and a smooth texture.

Marine typically has a deep, farmy aroma and a strong flavor of hay, mushrooms and cream. The cheese has a slight bitterness on the finish, which is typical of cheeses made using thistle rennet. 

This farmstead cheese is made using milk from the endangered Ripollesa breed of sheep, which graze on just over 200 acres of lush pastures. This breed produces exceptional quality milk but at a very low volume (.5 liter per day vs 2 liters per day for most commercial breeds). The cheese is made using vegetable rennet made from the wild thistles (Cynara cardunculus) that grow in the same pastures.
