Types and characteristics

Types and characteristics

The Mahón-Menorca variety is a pressed paste cheese, with rounded edges and corners ans parallelepiped shape. To make this cheese, we use milk that is freshly milked from our cows. 

In line with the regulation stipulated by the D.O.P. (Protected Denomination of Origin), the cheese is producted and matured exclusively in Minorca according to ancestral procedures.

The wind, humidity and the light of Minorca -Island that was declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO- also play a part in the unmistakable flavour of our cheese.

  • 2. Artisan Mahón-Menorca cheese: made from freshly-milked raw milk that has not undergone any kind of preservation treatment
