Beppino Occelli with Barley malt and Whisky
Estimated price per piece
Cusie is one of Beppino Occelli's grand cheeses. The word "cusie" is the local expression for “that which there is”, in the Piemontese dialect. It means that, in order to produce this cheese, Occelli uses whatever type of milk is available at the moment of production. Always starting with a base of high-quality alpine cow's milk, the cheese can be combined with either goat milk or sheep milk making each batch of cheese unique. The Cusie is one of the best cheeses produced in the Occelli's dairy, truly a nutty and piquant wheel.
Though delicious plain, this hard cheese has and unique treatment: the wheels of cheese are coated in whiskey-soaked barley and aged for a period from 18 to 24 months. This gives the Cusie cheese a smoky and sweet taste, together with an appealing look. Unlike other flavored cheeses, the Cusie al Malto d'orzo e Whisky is thoroughly infused with the flavors of its added ingredients. This way the barley and whisky become and integral part of this sumptuous delicacy.
The whisky goes down wonderfully with the flavour of malted barley, so much so that it can be enjoyed with the same distillate.
