Mahon cheese is a soft to hard white cheese made from cow's milk, named after the natural port of Mahon on the island of Minorca off the Mediterranean coast of Spain. Minorca is known for its cheese production and is home to one of the most respected dairy plants in Europe.

Characteristics: Mahón has some characteristics specific to it, despite aging. In general the cheese is buttery sharp, slightly salty and lightly aromatic (sweet and nutty aromas) in taste.

Mahón's sweet and fruity but at times slightly salty taste is due in part to the sea salt content in the grasses the cows eat. The rind is generally an orange color due to the rind being rubbed with butter, or oil, and paprika. As it reaches maturity (around 10 months) it tends to have small misshapen holes and has some granularity. In general, all aged Mahón has a proliferation of tiny holes.

Uses:
• Mahón is considered one of the most versatile cheese of the Spanish gastronomy.
• The creamy texture suggests it be served over pasta, potato, rice and/or vegetable dishes.
• The traditional manner of eating Mahón consisted of sliced cheese, sprinkled with olive oil, black pepper and tarragon.
• Most of the production of this cheese is used to make processed cheese.
