Boffard 'Reserva' Cheese is made 100% raw sheep milk, according to the age-old Castilian tradition.
The cheese is oiled three times with olive oil during the ageing period, which lasts at least 8 months for the large 3 kg cheese, and 4 months for the smaller 1 kg cheese.
This olive oil protects the cheese during the maturing process, and provides Boffard cheese with its unique and unmistakable flavour. 20 litres of milk is needed to produce each large 3 kg cheese. A very generous cheese, with a distinct nutty, slightly savoury and spicy flavour. Boffard 'Reserva' Cheese is well balanced, and lingers on the palate.
Allow it to 'breathe' at room temperature a short while before eating, and pair it with a good red wine, like Rioja or Ribera del Duero.
Boffard have been cheese makers for over 130 years, and are official suppliers of the Spanish Royal Palace.
