Aiket is a soft, white, mould- ripened cheese (brie, camembert style) again made from our Ayrshire cows’ milk. When young it is firm with a chalky texture and fresh mild taste.
The white mould growing on the surface ripens the cheese from the outside in to the centre. As it does this, the texture becomes smoother and creamier and it develops a rich almost mushroom flavour. It is a personal preference whether it is eaten young or fully ripe.
