Garrotxa has become representative of cheese from Catalunya as it is the best known cheese of that region, characterized by its natural grey mold rind. Its production was revived in the 1980s after nearly disappearing. Sant Gil D’Albió Garrotxa is produced by Josep, who took over the family business at the young age of 23 and has been working with us for nearly two decades. He works with local farmers to collect milk for his signature cheese, which he ages for 75 days. Full-bodied and flavorful with a long, smooth finish, there are strong hints of nuts and herbs. This particular cheese has great depth and balance of flavor with brightness from the fresh milk.
