The Pag cheese is the best known and most respected sheep’s cheese in Croatia. It is characterised by a pleasant spicy flavour and its colouring is light to dark yellow, depending on age. It is made of sheep’s milk from the Pag sheep, which graze on rocky pastures that are rich in various types of aromatic and medicinal plants. In addition, special value is added by the traces of salt that remain on the grass following the bora – the strong north wind that on the island of Pag.
The Pag cheese is one of the most recognizable Croatian brands, both in the country and abroad. The island of Pag produces about 220 tons of cheese each year.
