Ardi Gasna, which means "sheep's cheese" in Basque, is an unpasteurized French cheese found in Nive valley of the Pyrenees Mountains.
It has a hard texture but feels rich in the mouth. The flavours are clean and fresh, with the sweetness of mountain flowers and a characteristic, defined nutty taste. As the cheese ages, it strikes a perfect balance between sharpness and mildness.
Perfect on a cheeseboard, a salad or with jam as a dessert!
Country of origin: Pyrénées-Atlantiques, France
