  • How its made
    • Creatively crafted in Denmark from fresh cow's and sheep's milk
    • Cheese curds are made according to traditional methods in large open vats
    • The cultures are added by hand
    • Each cheese is pierced in a unique star pattern to give a perfect distribution of blue mould
    • The cheese is also cut by hand when the cheesemaker decides it has reached the right state of firmness
    • Each batch is inspected for quality before going into a pack

    The initial steps of production are similar to those of Castello Creamy Blue, using the same pasteurization process. However, part of the cream is homogenized and sheep's milk is added for that unique flavour profile of Intense Blue.
  • How to use
    • Slice it and enjoy it on top of bread or crackers
    • Pick a pairing and enjoy as an indulgent dessert with your drink
    • Serve on a cheese board as an appetiser, a snack or a dessert
    • Elevate the flavour of your pizza, soup or salad
