447 - Gortnamona


A mould ripened cheese made in the heart of Tipperary with the milk of local goats.

Ireland is renowned for its lush green fields and clean air, and in Tipperary, where the Maher farm is found, the pastures are rich and are surrounded by damp boggy land. It is the perfect environment to produce top quality milk needed to make fantastic cheeses. The fourth generation of the Maher family work the land and combine creativity and innovation with respect for traditional craft and simplicity to produce their renowned cheeses.

Gortnamona is a soft mould ripened Irish goats cheese. The cheese has a fresh clean flavour with a creamy texture when mature. The unique flavours of Gortnamona are attributed to the clean environment in which the milk is produced.

Gortnamona is an old Irish word, literally meaning 'Bog Fiend'.
