Irish Artisan Goats' Milk Cheese

Big flavour in a small package, Celtic Capra is a great example of Irish cheesemaking. This small goats' milk cheese has a delicate and mellow flavour and is wrapped in attractive Paxton & Whitfield packaging.

Celtic Capra has a crumbly texture which, with age, develops to a creamier consistency towards the rind. It has fresh, nutty taste from the rind, and a more citrus flavour coming from the paste. The cheese is an excellent ingredient for grilling, as it will retain its shape and flavour, making it perfect for bruschetta or salads.

Ireland is renowned for its lush green fields and clean air, and in County Tipperary where Celtic Capra is made, the pastures are rich and are surrounded by damp boggy land. The grass is full of clover and the soil is peaty, making it the perfect environment to produce the top quality milk needed to make fantastic cheeses. Paxton & Whitfield's Celtic Capra cheese is a great example of what the area can produce and is made on a farm which uses milk from a neighbouring goat herd.
