Our work with this cheese

Gubbeen is delivered to us from Ireland every two weeks. When it gets to us the cheeses are unwrapped and put on racks, and kept in a relatively warm environment. Our maturation team experimented with the temperatures they were keeping the cheeses at and found that keeping them for 2-3 weeks in our warmest maturation room resulted in cheeses which were meatier and more intense in flavour. The cheeses are turned once a week while they are maturing.
