The most famous cheese from the Balearic Islands, Mahon is a square-shaped wheel with a characteristic orange rind. It is made with milk from island cows who live in the protected biosphere of the island of Menorca. We have been working with Pedro, the cheesemaker, for over 20 years, one of our longest standing producer relationships. He ages it 4 months, giving it a creamy texture with plenty of moisture in the paste. It is mild and buttery with a nutty finish. Perfect for melting. Also available in pre-cut wedges.
