On The Pig's Back

Just got a small delivery from Mairead Tiernan on monday: 40 kg (1 wheel only!!) of the most perfect, smooth looking, nutty long-lasting taste  - 18 months old Glebe Brethan.

Made by David Tiernan who tragically died nearly a year ago, this is an exceptional  cheese and is a consecration of  David's talent.

Glebe Brethan is an artisan cheese made from unpasteurised Montbeliarde cows’ milk at the Tiernan Family Farm, Dunleer, Co. Louth, Ireland. The pedigree cows graze on lush pastures and are fed cereals grown on the farm. It is a gruyere-type cheese made in 45-kilo wheels, which are matured on spruce timbers for 6-18 months. It is carefully hand-turned and salted to form a natural rind, which enhances its unique flavour.
