The famous paprika-rubbed cheese from Menorca!
Records show that Mahon has been traded in the Mediterranean since about the 13th century.
Today this cheese is named protected, however both "industrial" and "artisan" versions exist. Industrial cheeses have a wax rind (not paprika) and are much milder in flavour.
Our artisan Mahon is matured by skilful afinadores who rub the cheese with butter, paprika and olive oil. Our semi-mature Mahon is somewhat crumbly in texture a complex fruity and slightly zingy flavour. It is a wonderfully versatile cheese - excellent for both snacking and cooking.
Enjoy Mahon with light white wines, light sherries and beer.
This cheese is featured in our Spanish Selection.
