Cairnsmore is a Scottish cheese produced by Galloway Farmhouse Cheese at their Milliaries Farm in Sorbie. This hard cheese, featuring a crusty rind with red ferments, is prepared from unpasteurised sheep’s milk. The rind develops a series of wonderful moulds as it matures. Inside, the ivory interior of the cheese is smooth with small holes. Its firm texture is very alike Cheddar but moister. Aromatic and nutty, with the sweetness of caramel and burnt toffee, the cheese ripens in seven to nine months and is only made from April to October. It is suitable for vegetarians. Since, it is made from whole milk of sheep; it is high in fat content. The cheese goes well with sweet wines.
