Liburnski Sir

One of the most reputed cheeses from the Croatian region of old Liburnia, Liburnski Sir is produced from mixed sheep (20%), cow (55%) and goat (25%) milk. Since Croatia doesn’t allow the production of animal rennet, Liburnski sir is made with the help of microbial rennet, thus making it a vegetarian cheese.

Liburnski is a hard, pasteurized cheese, aged for 3 to 6 months. Beneath the not-too-thin rind, the pate opens to a beautiful golden colour constant throughout with irregular eyes. The aroma is clean and mild with hints of butterscotch. The taste is exciting from start to finish; the early creamy mouth feel is promptly overcome by earthly and nutty notes before the tang of the goats milk chips in.
