Rio Deva Tres Leches

Nestled alongside the Deva River, in the region of Cantabria in the northern Spain, Juan Carlos and his wife Maria Carmen run a small family dairy. The dairy was established twenty-five years ago and after learning to make cheese from monks in the area, the duo now makes a handful of cheeses using sheep, cow and goat milk.

Made in the shape of a petite dome, Tres Leches is fairly mild, with clean flavors of fresh cream, tangy goat milk and sweet sheep milk. Wrapped in a soft, bloomy rind, this cheese is both approachable and intriguing. Tres Leches is outwardly simple while as a whole, downright astounding.
