Description

Delicious handcrafted blue cheese from the Liébana region.

Included in the family of the blue cheeses, Picón Bejés-Tresviso is a handcrafted cheese from the Liébana region, at the foot of the Picos de Europa mountains (Cantabria), made with a mixture of cow's, sheep's and goat's milk. Its flavour is sharp, spicy, buttery, with a great deal of personality, and its appearance is oily, yellowish-white in colour, with numerous bluish-green streaks produced by the 'penicillium' mould. It is aged for three or four months inside of natural limestone caves, which are abundant in the region. Its Denomination of Origin has existed since 1994.
