Inverness is a surface-ripened, soft-ripened cheese from Cowgirl Creamery. It is made using organic pasteurized cow's milk sourced from John Taverna's Chileno Valley Jersey Dairy. The cheese is set into a small cylinder with vegetable rennet and then aged for two weeks. It has a tangy, lactic paste enveloped by a bloomy rind and a dense, creamy mouthfeel.
This is an award winning cheese having won a silver medal at the 2009 North American Jersey Cheese Competition and third place at the 2010 American Cheese Society competition.
