Dungarvan, Waterford – Irish organic dairy producer The Little Milk Company announced today that they have launched their first product, a hand made certified organic Irish cheddar called Sliabh na mBan. The cheese is now available through Sheridan’s Cheese-mongers and online at their website thelittlemilkcompany.ie. The company are also in discussion with several other distributors with a view to getting the product available nationwide over the coming weeks.
Sliabh na mBan is made with the farmers own 100% certified Irish organic milk. It is made using a traditional 19th century recipe and the cheese is then wrapped in cheesecloth and hand turned in their maturing rooms. The cheese comes in three varieties, a mild (aged up to 9 months), a mature (aged from 9-14 months) and a vintage (aged from 14 months up). They are all high in anti-oxidants and rich in omega 3. The mild is made using pasteurised milk and the mature and vintage are made from raw milk. Sliabh na mban has been very well received at tastings and featured in Sheridan’s monthly cheese club in March.
