Brin

Le Brin cheese originates from Savoie, the Rhone-Alps region in France. Invented during 1980's by Framagerie Guilloteau, Le Brin became famous as a milder and sweeter version of the traditional French washed-rind cheeses.

Produced in a hexagonal shape by the Guilloteau creamery, Le Brin is a semi-soft, spreadable paste with reddish orange rind and a sweet aroma and taste. It is a farmhouse cheese made from cow's milk. Traditional methods such as adding vegetarian rennet to the milk and using ultra-filtration method for separating the curd from the whey are followed while producing it.
