Croatian Sheep Cheese Gets Global Award

A cheese from Croatia's Adriatic island of Pag has been voted the best sheep-milk cheese in the world at a prestigious competition in the UK.

Croatia Week

Pag cheese (Paski sir) was honoured as one of the world’s best with a gold medal in the sheep-milk cheese category at the International Cheese Awards held in Nantwich in Britain on Tuesday.

Experts from the dairy industry and British and Italian celebrity chefs James Martin and Gino D’Acampo were among the judges who named Paski sir, produced by the Croatian dairy company Gligora, as the winner.

“We had altogether 4,286 cheeses [at the awards] in total, which is a record, and the standard was extremely high,” said International Cheese Awards host Richard Paul.

Gligora’s Paski sir, which has already won several other international awards, has a peculiar and subtly piquant taste and smell.

Paul said that the gold medal for Paski sir meant that consumers could be sure that the Croatian cheese was the finest cheese of its kind.
