A little history about Cashel Blue

The Grubb family has lived in Ireland since the 17th century, when they fled England for religious reasons. Ever since, they have been millers and butter makers on their farm at Beechmount, near the dramatic limestone outcrop known as the Rock of Cashel. Cashel Blue was created by husband and wife Louis and Jane Grubb in the 1980’s. The idea came about after Jane – a chef – saw a gap in the market for a great Irish blue cheese. The cheese is made in a one-hundred- year-old copper vat. They use only milk from their own herd of pedigree British Friesian cows. In 2003, their daughter Sarah returned to the business with her husband Sergio after working in the wine business.
