Milleens is a pinkish, washed-rind, raw cow's milk cheese with a creamy paste which the Steeles have been making since 1976 on the beautiful Beara Peninsula in South West Ireland. The milk is from Friesian cows. It has complex floral flavours and is reminiscent of an energetic Reblochon. This cheese was Supreme Champion at 1997 British Cheese Awards. The cheese should be kept refrigerated and allowed to come to room temperature before eating. It continues to ripen and soften for up to three months after being made.
