  • About Risiley

    Riseley is a washed-rind sheep’s milk soft cheese that is washed during the maturation process with water and brine. This inhibits mould and encourages a distinctive pinkish orange rind to form.

Flavour notes:
Strong and savoury with hints of smoke and saltiness. The rind can be slightly chewy with a sometimes salty crunch
