Irish Porter Cheese has been made by Marion Cahill using pasteurised cow’s milk and Guinness-brewer Porter since 1759.
It is blended to create a visually dramatic mosaic pattern which is the most attractive part of the cheese other than its flavour. It is a vegetarian cheese as the curds and whey are separated with vegetable rennet.
The flavours of this brown waxed gourmet cheese are full, rich, tangy and chocolaty with a pungent finish. It goes perfect as the hors D’Oeuvre when sliced and served with salad.
This cheese can also be served grilled or paired with a chilled pint of Guinness stout or porter.
