Dunlop recipe dates from the 17th Century and was first made in Ayrshire. Each truckle was dressed in muslin to seal and keep the maturing cheese moist and we still do this today.
Connage use pasteurised milk and traditional methods. Dunlop is a Scottish Cheddar with slightly higher moisture and develops a lovely depth of flavour as it matures for 7 months. It has a rounded nutty, warm and creamy taste that lingers on the palate.
