Origin: Midi Pyrenees, France
The Basque region is in the south west of France and encompasses the Pyrénées Mountains bordering Spain. The people of Basque Country insist their brebis cheeses have remained true to the traditional style for over 4000 years.
Onetik Petit Basque Basquitou is a smaller version of the equally delectable Ossau Iraty, with some subtle differences in texture and flavour. The texture is slightly firmer with less elasticity; the flavour is described as oily, olive like, nutty, slightly meaty and fruity. Onetik’s Petit Basque is one of the world’s great cheeses.
