It’s said that only experienced artisans have the know-how to produce this gourmet favorite. Made for generations at the foot of the Arrabida Mountains, this unpasteurized sheep’s milk cheese is handcrafted with thistle flower instead of animal rennet. The result is a thick, smooth, and soft cheese with a strong, earthy aroma. When ripe, Azeitao has a rich, creamy, slightly sour flavor with hints of flowers or sweet herbs. When left at room temperature, the cheese becomes almost melty. Aprox 250g to 300g

This is a very tasty cheese to be eaten at any time, cut thickly and served with olive bread or even grilled!
