King Island finally launches new cheese range
Australian cheesemaker King Island Dairy has launched its first new cheese products in seven years.
The Tasmanian-based dairy company has announced the release of a soft-centred white mould, double cream cheese called “Furneaux” and a washed rind, semi-soft black label cheese called “Huxley”.
Senior Brand Manager King Island Dairy, Renee Tsironis, said that consumers were trending towards products with a “pasture to palate story.”
“Five years ago, the Huxley Washed Rind would have been considered a niche product as washed rind cheeses didn’t enjoy the popularity they do today,” Ms Tsironis said.
“[Consumers] are seeking impressive new flavours and textures to put on their cheese platters so we’re confident that both the Huxley Washed Rind and Furneaux Double Cream will really lift the bar for Australian cheeses,” she added.
The Furneaux Double Cream has been given the tasting notes of having a “delicate aroma of jersey milk and fresh hay with a rich, melting quality and concentrated, sweet butter flavour.” It will be available in delicatessens and the deli section of most major supermarkets.
The Huxley Washed Rind is described as a “fully washed rind cheese, with a shiny cream centre and balanced flavour.” It is available exclusively through wholesale and high end delicatessens.
Both the Furneaux Double Cream and Huxley Washed Rind are expected to retail for approximately $60 per Kg.
