Cabrales is a natural cheese made in the artisan tradition by rural family dairy farmers in the county of Cabrales, in the heart of the Picos de Europa mountain range in Spain.
Cabrales P.D.O. is matured four months in natural limestone caves with high humidity, favouring the development of penicillium molds, yielding veins of blue-greenish color.
Cabrales is compact but crumbly with a unique, long lasting, developed and piquant taste for lovers of strong cheeses. Its aroma is also strong, typical of matured blue cheese.
