Roaring Forties Blue
Roaring Forties Blue Cheese is made by the King Island Dairy. King Island is situated south of Melbourne, Australia at the western end of Bass Strait. Dairying is the largest primary industry among this island's 1,500 inhabitants. According to local legend, grass seeds found in King Island's soil are believed to have been washed ashore in straw mattresses from some 60 eighteenth-century French and English shipwrecks that are strewn along the King Island coast. For almost a century now, dairy herds have grazed on these unique pastures. The quality of these pastures, combined with a pristine environment and a year-round growing season, enables the dairy farmers on King Island to practice traditional feeding methods. The cows are reputed to produce the sweetest milk in the land, and from this milk comes a range of dairy products acknowledged throughout Australia and rapidly earning the same sort of reputation in the international marketplace. Roaring Forties Blue is a full-flavored blue with a sweet, nutty character. The cheese is matured in blue wax, thus retaining its moisture and creating a smooth and creamy texture.
Made from pasteurized cow's milk.
