‘Paški Sir is a wonderfully tasteful sheep milk cheese that brings full and complex flavor to the palate and melts nicely in the mouth. Authentic and unique, Paški Sir is a pure delight and displays quality in the making, leaving a long and pleasant aftertaste to savor. A yellowish creamy color with farmhouse aromas, Paški Sir has well balanced texture, taste, aromas and finish and is delightfully tasty’.

Paški Sir may well be new to these shores, but this refined artisan cheese has been made with craft and skill on the little Island of Pag for centuries. Situated off the Croatian coast in the Adriatic beneath the imposing Velebit mountain range, conditions are unique with climate, vegetation, terrain and a special breed of sheep all contributing to this wonderful delight.
