Wicklow Blue is a Brie-style blue cheese made using pasteurized cow's milk and vegetarian rennet. It is made by John and Bernie Hempenstall of Wicklow Farmhouse Cheese at their small dairy farm in the South East of Co. Wicklow.
The butter fragrant yellow paste is lined with blue moulds and enveloped by a bloomy rind. The white fluffy rind smells of aromatic fresh white mushrooms which balance creamy, buttery flavours of the paste. The blue hints are subtle and do not overpower the buttery, creaminess lingering on the palate.
