Produced exclusively from the milk of the autochthonous sheep on the Island of Pag, Paški Sir is the most famous ewes' milk cheese in all of Croatia. This is a one-year-aged pasteurized cheese made from the sheep raised on the island of Pag, Croatia. There are a total of 40,000 sheep and 8,000 humans on the island of Pag. The sheep are a special breed, smaller than average with limited milk production. The island is windy with little vegetation, what little grass it has is in the hills, and due to the crosswinds much of the salt water blows over it. The sheep produce very little milk, maximum just a liter per day. On top of that their diet is influenced by the salty grass they eat. In total it takes 6 sheep or more to produce one wheel of cheese. Our producer is Paška Sirana. They have 200 members who together have 300 sheep. The cheesemaker, Nenad, has been making cheese for 15 years. The cheese is rich and flavorful – it is not overly dry and there is a beautiful crystallinity in the texture with a gentle sweetness. Traditionally this aged cheese is served chunked and crumbled with olive oil.
  • Made from pasteurized sheep's milk.
  • Photo depicts whole 5 lb. form of cheese.
  • We cut and wrap this item by hand.

I was looking for a cheese to serve at My son's wedding in July. This cheese can be served sliced or crumbled with olive oil. It has a strong flavor without being overpowering.

Cool Story But...Meh
Im a sucker for a Croatian (or any other kind of strange, unusual) type of cheese. And this one was expensive too--so tempting! I couldnt resist, the end of the day, exotic-ness aside, this cheese was just so-so. Tasted like a poor man's parmagianno.

Good Not Great
I had higher expectations, that's not the cheese's fault. I got 4 cheeses and this was my third favorite. Still it was good.

Better last time
The first time I had this cheese I absolutely loved it. And this time it was still decent but not as exceptional as last time and I only grade it a B. I also ordered Euphoria and Flagsheep and both of them were much better and I would give them each an A.

I'm in love
I tried Paski Sir at [ ] in Houston. Immediately, I was in love. I don't have the words to explain the awesomeness. We ate it with excellent dry gourmet crackers and specialty, aged sausage! A night I will never forget. The two of us, became one. I will always have Paski Sir in my fridge, to share with all my family and friends. Try her, you will love her too! I promise. Thank you igourmet and [ ] for the introduction!

Excellent customer service
Well, my cheese was delayed in the mail, but they graciously provided a replacement item, and that impressed me very much!

Paski sir
We ate this cheese just about everyday when we were in Croatia and have been missing it since we live in Canada and cannot buy it here. I was very happy to find your website and that you had the cheese to order. I ordered it for Christmas and it was a nice surprise and treat for the whole family. The cheese is excellent! The service was excellent and delivery very quick. Would not hesitate to order again. Thanks

Family favourite
Had a sheep cheese tasting with extended family. Cubes of different cheeses, each followed by fruit. THIS one was the favorite, the one people actually wrote down in order to purchase on their own. While it may traditionally be served with olive oil, it is also great with fruit, and as a stand alone table cheese.
