Cooleeney is produced on the Maher farm in the heart of Tipperary where the peaty pastures are rich and are surrounded by damp boggy land – an environment which allows the Mahers to produce this soft, ripe, runny camembert style cheese with a delicate mushroomy flavour and pleasing after taste.

Cooleeney is a firm favourite at Indie Fude and every customer likes it at a specific stage of ripeness. A young Cooleeney is firm with a chalky paste and light mushroomy flavour. As it ages the structure starts to break down, the paste starts to ooze and the mouths start to water as a pleasant bitterness develops.

There are countless creative ways to serve your Cooleeney and it all depends on personal preference. A beautiful, runny, ripe wedge will look fantastic at the centre of your cheeseboard, or for a decadent lunch, why not bake it and top with some sweet rhubarb chutney and a fresh, zesty salad.

Fabulous selection of local products. Great staff who took the time to be really helpful, and offered tasting of the produce. Nothing was too much trouble. Great range of products – wish I had had more time to browse. I can’t wait to return.
