Imokilly Regato cheese

Imokilly Regato is a PDO cows’ milk cheese produced by the Dairygold Co-operative in the baronies of Imokilly, Fermoy and Muskerry in south-east Cork. All production, processing and preparation takes place in the area and the milk used comes only from pasture-fed animals. In times of exceptional shortage, milk from other adjacent areas is occasionally used. The rennet used to make the cheese has been specifically developed for Imokilly Regato.

The cheese has a rounded, sweet, piquant flavour, has a creamy-yellow rind in colour with a firm texture. It is wheel-shaped with convex edges. A Celtic cord pattern, which has been patented, is embossed on the upper and lower surfaces. The interior is straw-yellow to golden-cream with a well-knit and firm texture with some holes. The colour is directly linked to the unique qualities of the local milk supply.

Manufactured only from milk produced by cows grazing on pasture in the period March to October, the cheese incorporates production skills traditional to the region. It is salted twice, once in a brine bath and then dry-salted by a traditional hand method. It is matured for 9-12 months.
