Lola Montez is an organic Bavarian mountain cheese made by Evelyn Wilde who is the cheesemaker for Isny Dairy - a collective of 7 organic dairy farmers. The Lola or ‘Alp Blossom’ is made with the raw milk of cows who graze freely on the rich, green pastures of the Allgäu Mountains in Southwest Germany. The cheese is lightly rind washed in brine and wine and then matured for exceptional flavour.
This cheese is named after Lola Montez, who was an Irish dancer and actress who was famously also the mistress of King Ludwig I of Bavaria.
Lola Montez has a rich, smooth and buttery texture with a full, fruity and grassy flavour that lasts on the palate, with delicate floral notes from the gorgeous dried Alpine flowers that are pressed onto the outside of the cheese.
This cheese is aged for a minimum of 4 months, but often over a year, and is made with raw cows’ milk and traditional rennet.
