Mahón is the iconic cheese of Menorca with a distinctive square shape and rounded edges. The vibrant, orange coloured rind is created by rubbing it with pimentón and olive oil as it matures.

The semi-hard, sometimes crumbly texture has a fruity, fresh and creamy aroma complemented by rich, savoury and yoghurty flavours.

Quesos Torralba

Quesos Torralba, a third family generation driven business, was founded in 1939 and it is now run by Nicolas and Rosa. The company started simply with storing Mahón cheeses which got sold to local businesses.

Gradually they began to add value to their trade by buying young, artisan produced Mahón cheeses and looking after and ripening them to various states of maturity.
