Carrig Bru

About This Cheese

Light and buttery with hints of cream, earth, and a slight ale finish. Carrig Bru has a semi-firm texture and natural rind developed in Sheridans Cheesemongers maturing room. 




RegionKells, Co. Meath





As freshly made wheels, the Carrig Bru rounds have a lovely smooth paste and a sweet milkyness, with no developed rind. We bring the young wheels of plain Carrigaline to our warehouse in Co Meath to grow the natural, craggy rind unique to Carrig Bru. In the Sheridans maturing room, they are put on wooden shelves and the natural rind is created by repeated washing in Irish Ale. While the ale does not impart a beer flavour, it helps the rind grow and develop the overall flavour of the cheese.


The O' Farrell family have been making cheese in Co Cork since the late 1980’s. Their cheese range is called ‘Carrigaline’ and includes a plain semi- firm pressed Friesian cow’s milk cheeses along with cheeses with added natural flavours. Their cheeses have a lovely smooth paste and a sweet milkyness, matured without a natural rind and wax wrapped.
