Rio Deva Tres Leches

Near the Deva River, in the region of Cantabria in northern Spain, Juan Carlos Martínez Casares and his wife Maria Carmen run a small dairy. The dairy was established 25 years ago and, after learning to make cheese from monks in the area, the couple now makes a handful of cheeses using sheep, cow and goat's milk.

Made from a blend of cow, sheep and goat's milk, Tres Leches is mild, with clean flavors of fresh cream, sweetness from the sheep's milk and a hint of tang from the goat's milk. With its unique beehive shape and matted bloomy rind, this cheese is perfect under a drizzle of honey or alongside a few candied cherries.
