Oxford Isis has a soft, pale yellow creamy inside and a soft, slightly-darker rind on the outside. It has a strong tangy taste and smell.
It is made from pasteurized cow’s milk and is curdled with traditional rennet. During aging, the rind is sprayed with mead.
Oxford Isis Cheese is made by the Oxford Cheese company in Oxfordshire, England.
Production of Oxford Isis Cheese started in 2003. The first customers were restaurants in Oxford and colleges at the university.
“Isis” is the name locals give to the Thames River as it flows through Oxford.
