Saroi, the oldest cheese in the Basque Country

The Unaiak brand recovers Saroi, the oldest cheese in the Basque Country, made from cow's and sheep's milk

Grupo TGT, with more than 50 years of experience in the production and distribution of cheese, brings its most recent new launches to the Alimentaria table, which range from the traditional to the daring.

Thus, under the Unaiak brand, the firm brings back Saroi, the traditional cheese of the Basque mountains, symbol of the “unaia” hut, which boasts of being the oldest cheese in the Basque Country. This large cheese, which has almost disappeared, is made from a mixture of cow’s and sheep’s milk and is notable for its mild flavour.

Directly from the Roncal Valley, TGT brings another novelty to the fair: Ahuyentalobos, a raw sheep’s milk cheese created naturally in an eight-month process. Mould growth and oil-based surface treatment contribute to the formation of an ochre-coloured rind with intense milky aromas reminiscent of damp earth. It has an unctuous mouthfeel, very intense, with notes of black pepper and slightly acidic.

Pazo do Queixo is the new brand that TGT Group launched to the cry of ‘Mi Madriña! A Galician expression of admiration and positive surprise for a line that highlights the value of Galician cheeses with D.O. Arzúa-Ulloa DOP, Tetilla DOP and San Simón DOP. The more daring side of cheese comes from the Oh My Cheese brand, with the latest addition: goat’s cheese hearts with cherry. And to top it all off, Roncari Blue Desmigado de Oveja, voted “Product of the Year 2002” in its category.
