Fleur de Maquis is made using the milk of the ewes who graze the Bastia region on the island of Corsica. The resulting cheese is covered with indigenous aromatic herbs, juniper berries and the occasional birds eye chilli. This marriage of flavours represents the Corsican spirit, with the ewes' milk being flavoured by the native vegetation which fragrances the countryside of the island to create a unique flavour which is captivating and intense.

First created in the 1950s, this is a stunning artisan cheese. Its name comes from the flower that grows in the area, although the cheese can also be known as Brin D'Amour as the interior is fine and the colour varies between red and green.
