Our Cheese

Milleens is a semi-soft washed rind cheese made with pasteurised whole milk from Friesian cows.  The cheese varies in age between 4-12 weeks and is made using animal rennet.


It is a flat round cheese which varies in diameter between 7-23 cm and thickness between 5–8cm often slightly bulging at the middle.  The cheese comes in weights from 100g to 1.2kg and there are also smoked options.


There are two presentations of the cheese available; the solid ‘Dotes’ and the ‘O’ similar to the Dote but without the centre.

The ‘O’ and ‘Dotes’ are different in both flavour and texture. The ‘O’ is more evocative of the original Milleens, with slight chalkiness at the centre of the pate and a particularly earthy aroma emitting from pungent, pink orangey rind. In contrast, the ‘Dotes’ are softer and more fragrant with an active orange rind.

Both present a firm, creamy texture and herbal, mushroomy and floral taste intensified by the farmyard aromas.

Ingredients:  Milk, starter cultures, rennet, salt and the wash mixture.

Allergens: Milk
