Idiazabal Cheese

Smoky, woodsy, and pleasantly fatty.

Quick Overview:

The texture of chilled butter. A shepherd's bonfire under the Spanish stars.

Quick Facts

Country of Origin: Spain
Milk Type/Treatment: Raw Sheep
Rennet Type: Animal

The Flavor Experience

Traditional cheesemaking techniques mixed with the latest technology and high-quality milk make for a Manchego-style cheese you'll easily get hooked on. Only you can prevent eating this delicious smoky goodness.

The Story

Originating in the Basque country, this is a cheese from humble means. When made in the tiny, mountain huts of Northern Spain, cheesemakers would store the cheese close to their fireplaces in order to aid the drying of each wheel. However, with no chimneys, the cheese would absorb the smoke of the fire, adding the signature smoky flavor and a beautiful hue to the rind.

Usage Tips

Chorizo's best friend, and a must with a farmhouse saison. Put it on a crepe for a woodsy breakfast, or top with spicy mustard and crushed kettle chips.

    Wonderful Spanish cheese- great way to switch things up instead of always going for the Manchego! Mild & complements a lot of meats well
