Traditional Ayrshire Dunlop PGI
Scotland's only protected cheese, Traditional Ayrshire Dunlop is a hard-pressed cheese reminiscent of cheddar but more moist. It exhibits a mild, nutty flavour and a smooth, close texture when young. As it matures over 12 to 14 months, it develops robust strength with a subtle sharpness.
Named after the nearby village of Dunlop, this cheese signifies its origin in the Dunlop area and is made with milk from Ayrshire cows. Its traditional production method has earned a Protected Geographical Indication since 2015 in the EU and the UK, recognized as Traditional Ayrshire Dunlop PGI.
