New traditional cheese website: AlQueso.es

AlQueso.es is a new website that was born with the objective of being a leader in the world of traditional cheese.


AlQueso.es focuses on selecting small local producers and artisan cheesemakers from all of Spain. Searching and selecting of products is carried out continuously, with a calling to have a suitable supply in terms of curation, intensities, sizes and types of cheeses.

The current supply of traditional cheeses includes a selection of soft, semihard, hard, aged, and blue cheeses, in oil and eco-friendly. Along with this offering are accompaniments such as crackers, sauces, chutneys, honey and cheese pastes.

Featured in the collection are cheeses that are recent winners of the prestigious World Cheese Awards, such as the Torta Caprichos de la Pastora, the semihard Payoyo goat cheese, the Pell Florida and the Roncal de Larra. Also included in the lineup are exclusive cheeses such as the Gamoneu del Puerto, which now is only produced by five shepherds in the Picos de Europa, or the three-milk Cabrales, also in small production. To these are added a good representation of truffled cheeses, so prized that they are within the gourmet world.

In total, there are more than 80 standards that make up this initial offering from AlQueso.es
