Prom Country Venus Blue: Review

Prom Country Venus Blue is a multi-award winning farmhouse cheese from Gippsland in Victoria made from raw ewe’s milk and vegetarian rennet. The washed rind exterior has strong aroma of floral with hints of mushroom. The ivory paste contains dashes of blue and has classic mineral and herbal flavours alongside mixed peel and a lovely rounded dairy aspect with natural sweetness. It’s delightful stuff.

The strong flavours here need a strong wine to handle is . Try a sherry. Or see my cheese and wine pairing guide for more options.

Where to Buy

Prom Country list their stockists. Bricks and mortar vendors are largely in Victoria. However there are plenty of online options with national coverage. I got mine at Ripe Cheese.
