This farmhouse blue cheese made from ewes milk cheese is produced by the family-run Prom Country Cheese in Gippsland, Victoria.
Venus Blue is a mild yet complex blue cheese that has won many major awards. Behind a natural multi-coloured rind is an ivory paste marbled with greenish-blue veins. On the palate there are yeasty, champignon, spicy and slightly smokey flavours that cut through the trademark ewe's milk sweetness. At peak maturity, Venus Blue has a wonderful combination of creamy mouthfeel, earthy spiciness and hints of mixed peel and honeysuckle.
A little history about Prom Country

All of the cheeses are handmade on the farm using milk from the family’s own ewes, making them a true farmhouse operation.
