Details: Flor de Esgueva Viejo Queso Completo, weighing approximately 3.35 kilograms, is a true gem among Spanish cheeses. Crafted exclusively with raw or pasteurized milk, this aged cheese boasts a unique and captivating flavor profile. Its compact, dense, and slightly oily texture sets it apart as one of the finest cheeses in the Spanish gastronomic repertoire.

Originating from the "Quesería del Valle de Esgueva" in 1946, this cheese began as a visionary venture by an entrepreneurial Catalan and a skilled farmer from La Mancha. Their shared goal was to produce the first Manchego cheese in the region using a distinctive artisanal approach. While the Flor de Esgueva factory relocated to Peñafiel in 1970, its reputation continued to grow, thanks to its location near the renowned Ribera del Duero wine region. It even caught the attention of Swiss multinational NESTLE in 1973, which became an integral part of its production and distribution, leading to the creation of approximately 3,300 tons of Flor de Esgueva cheese in 2005.

In 2006, the French multinational LACTALIS, owned by the Besnier family and one of the world's leading dairy producers, acquired Flor de Esgueva. This acquisition elevated the cheese to international prominence. It's remarkable to think about how two visionary entrepreneurs started with an artisanal formula and eventually achieved such extraordinary success.

Ingredients: Flor de Esgueva Viejo is made from raw sheep's milk, salt, animal rennet (from suckling lamb), calcium chloride stabilizer, and dairy ferments. The inedible rind includes preservatives E-200 and E-235, as well as colorants E-171 and E-172. The milk used originates from Spain.
