After working for years in product development and quality control in industrial cheese production settings, cheesemaker Reggie Jones finally decided to branch off on his own and pursue small-scale artisanal production. He founded Central Coast Creamery in Paso Robles, CA in 2008. Today he specializes in producing aged cheeses that are handmade in small batches using local California milk and organic ingredients.

This firm, waxed 100% sheep’s milk cheese is actually made in Holland using Reggie’s original recipe. It’s aged for four months, developing a brilliant, velvety-white paste and a delicate texture. 

Tasting Notes

Ewenique is sweet with flavors redolent of salted caramel and fresh vanilla beans, with a slight hint of citrus to contrast the savory qualities of the sheep’s milk. Despite its firm texture, the cheese is meltingly soft and smooth on the palate.
