Spanish Mahon is a cow’s milk cheese from the island of Menorca in the Balearic Islands in Spain. Named after the Island’s historic port, it is aged and washed with oil and paprika, imparting the signature bright orange rind.
Mahon is mild but salty, nutty with fruity overtones that appeal to many palates. Pair with lighter reds from Rioja or an Autumn Ale and enjoy with bread, olive oil, cracked black pepper, and tarragon for a simple snack. Get cheesy and add to your next grilled cheese sammie or grate over pizza for a unique flavor punch. Drizzle with honey and serve alongside fresh figs, pair with a white Rioja, for a savory sweet combination. Versatile and delicious, add Spanish Mahon to your cheese rotation this month!
