Rubi meaning Jewel in French.
Rubi is made in very small batches entirely by hand. We dress the little cheese with edible flowers before they bloom a white mould rind.
The cheese blooms a velvety cover which sometimes covers and captures the little flowers.
As a young cheese Rubi is mild and balanced with a slight hint of a creamy blue flavour. The acid present makes this cheese lively and fresh and is typical of its lactic nature.
This little cheese is both elegant in looks and flavour it also has a tendency to become slightly firmer as it matures.
According to personal preference, this cheese will have a shelf life up to 4 weeks from make date but this is only a guide real intensity occurs well past the best before date. Always check the best before date.
*the flowers may fade in colour as the cheese ages
