About Bleu de Basques

Milk Type: Sheep

In the heart of Basque country, among the lush rolling mountains of the Pyrénées, lies Onetik, an innovative producer that protects local agriculture by sourcing milk from small remote farms. Essentially a blue veined Ossau-Iraty, Bleu des Basques is totally unique for this thousand year old dairy region. Upon its release in 2001, it received its AOP title and a Gold Medal in Paris at the Concours Général Agricole, one of the highest honors a food producer can receive in Europe! Like most Basque cheeses, it has a lovely buffed rind and is oily, firm and supple in texture. The paste is rich with fruity flavors, fresh nut, brine, and butter, but it incorporates a wonderfully smooth blue tang that inevitably leaves the eater profoundly satisfied. The ultimate “gateway blue” -Bleu des Basques will win over snobs and novices in equal measure.
