Skellig by Kerrygold
Skellig is the newest grass-fed cheese to be released by Kerrygold of Ireland. A popular Cheddar variety in the U.K., Kerrygold's sweet Skellig cheddar is a complex cheese with a firm yet creamy texture, a distinct nuttiness and sweet apple notes. The cheese is not "sweet" as sugar is sweet, but is more mild and creamy, with a savory butterscotch flavor. Skellig is part of a European class of cheddars that focus on complex flavors, without an intense, sharp bite. Like all Kerrygold cheeses and butters, Skellig is made in Ireland with milk from grass-fed cows that are free of artificial growth hormones. The cows are raised on small family farms, with an average herd size of 60. A deliciously complex cheese, Skellig can be used to add seductive flavor to any culinary applications for Cheddar. Serve it as part of a cheese board. Thread small cubes on skewers alternating with dates or dried figs. Shred it on salads or melt it over a burger. Aged for a minimum of 12 months.
Made from pasteurized cow's milk.
