This milky Italian cheese gets its rich creaminess from the use of buffalo milk. Italian water buffalo produce the richest and sweetest milk of all dairy animals, which gives this pudgy cheese a marshmallow-like sweetness and notes of custard. The plump, pillowy texture and delicate flavor of Casatica® di Bufala is a perfect match for similarly rich accompaniments like silky Prosciutto San Daniele and buttery Castelvetrano Olives.
- Buffalo milk is prized for its high fat content, and the globules of fat are smaller than traditional cow's milk, so they do not separate out as easily. This makes any cheese made with water buffalo milk distinctly creamy in texture.
- The Italian Mediterranean buffalo is the only indigenous water buffalo breed in Italy. It was introduced to Italy during Roman times, Buffalo, and buffalo-milk cheesemaking, are common to Italy’s arid, southern “boot” provinces, where a rich buffalo-milk cheesemaking tradition goes back to at least the 10th century. They are far less common in the North.
Blanco tequila has clean, crisp agave flavors, with notes of honey, a buttery sweetness, and hints of limey citrus. Reposado tequila, meanwhile, gets aged in oak barrels for up to a year, emerging smooth and full-bodied, with smoky notes and hints of vanilla, lemongrass, and wildflowers. Aged for one to three years in oak barrels, añejo tequila develops a complex balance of dried fruit and piquant spice, with notes of butterscotch, and vanilla.
