Smoked Drumlin is a robust raw milk cows cheese smoked from beech and oak by Corleggy Cheeses in Belturbet. At Corleggy every cheese is made by hand with production not exceeding 10 tonnes per annum between Goats, Sheep & Cows’ milk cheeses. Tom & Silke Cropp collect all their milk from three neighbouring farms using just that morning’s milk for production.
Drumlin is a hard cow’s cheese matured for a minimum of 2 months. Drumlin at 2 – 3 months has a smooth taste and a slight nutty flavour. The smoke is from beech and oak and compliments the cheese rather than overpowers. Drumlin also comes in traditional (unsmoked), Drumlin Wild Garlic & Chilli, Drumlin Cumin, Drumlin Thyme and Drumlin Green Peppercorn, all of which allow the base cheese to be enjoyed before the herbaceous characters of the additions come through…yum!
While just perfect enjoyed on its own, Drumlin Smoked is a beautiful melter making it perfect for a fancy cheese toasty or to add a smokey flavour to a juicy, chargrilled burger. Kick it up a notch by adding a dollop of Ballymaloe relish. So simple but so good!
