Mt Scott

Mt Scott Havarti is a Danish-style cow's milk cheese made by the Gibbston Valley Cheese Company. It has a sweet, soft and pliable texture with a deep buttery flavour and slightly sharp finishing notes. The cheese is matured for about a year, if made by Havarti style, and a period of four months, if made by Derbyshire style.

Its subtle flavour appeals to most palates and is quite often served in Europe at breakfast on hot toasted bread with lashings of butter.
