Jubilee Blue is a log-shaped, blue cheese with smooth, velvety, soft-white rind made from cow's milk. It is smooth, creamy and Brie-like cheese with small blotches of blue mould scattered throughout the white paste. The cheese has aroma of mushrooms and the taste is suggestive of melted butter with a spicy flavour. The period of maturing is approximately 40 days.
This cheese was created to celebrate the 40th anniversary of production of another New Zealand blue cheese called Blue Vein. Both cheeses are produced by Rennet Company that has been existed for more than 75 years.
