Fourth generation cheesemaker Javier and his wife make this teardrop shaped cheese in their home in Lugo, Galicia, which also doubles as a cheese plant. It’s a tiny operation with only 4 employes, and the care with which this award-winning cheese is made shows. Javier waits until the end of the process to smoke the cheese with birch wood for up to 90 minutes. It develops a lovely caramel colored exterior, a golden interior with tiny eyes and a subtle smoked flavor. Javier says the aroma reminds his customers of a time gone by, when their food was cooked over a wood-fired flame. We couldn’t agree more.

We’re excited to introduce our newest raw milk find from Spain! This “Sacred Dame” is produced using Murciana goat’s milk in the town of Carpio de Tajo, just outside of Toledo. The goats belong to a cooperative of farmers who also are members of the dairy that make the cheese. They believe in aging the cheese a minimum of 6 months to accentuate the best features of the cheese, which has a full flavor (sweet and grassy) and great protein formation.

This semi soft goat cheese is soaked in the traditional style wine of the region, Doble Pasta, which is made from the Monastrell grape. The cheese is aged for 60 days, so that you can still enjoy some of the wine’s flavors and the rind takes on an attractive violet hue. Drunken Goat® is mild and smooth, not goaty, with a touch of fruitiness in the finish. Forever Cheese was the first importer of the D.O.P Queso de Murcia al Vino and since then has been instrumental in helping to protect the D.O.P in the U.S.
