Grubb Family Cashel Blue
- Vegetarian Rennet
- Age: 2-4 months
- Cow Milk
Louis and Jane Grubb are the cheesemakers behind groundbreaking Cashel Blue—the first blue cheese made in Ireland. It was developed in the 1980s on their 200-acre farm in County Tipperary, Ireland, to highlight the quality of their grass-fed milk. The result is a flavorful and voluptuous cheese with a mild blue tang and mineral undertones. Today, this creamy beauty is still made by hand on that same farm. Balance its salty kick with something sweet, like a riesling.
- Kicked out of England 300 years ago for religious differences, the Grubbs packed up and took to milling and buttermaking practices in County Tipperary, Ireland.
- Cashel Blue is made from the milk of the Grubbs' 110 Friesian cows, pasteurized and ripened for between two and six months.
- The most flavorful cheeses are made from April to October when the cows are out to pasture.
