Picón Cheese: Traditional Delight with Denomination of Origin

Picón cheese has had a Protected Designation of Origin since 1994. Traditionally known as Picón de Tresviso or Picón de Bejes cheese, its regulation unified these names for the cheeses produced in this region. The towns of Tresviso and Bejes, known for their rich cheese-making tradition, are the main producers and have given their name to this exquisite cheese.

Picón de Cantabria Cheese

Of "Picón Bejes" origin, it covers the Liébana region and the municipality of Peñarrubia. The town of Bejes is one of the nerve centers of this cheese production, guaranteeing the authenticity and quality of Picón cheese.

Ripening in Cuevas

The ripening of this cheese is a natural process that takes place for a minimum of two months in limestone caves, characteristic of the region. This traditional method of ripening in natural caves gives Picón cheese its unique flavor and texture.

Traditional Elaboration

Picón Cheese is made in a traditional way with whole raw milk from cows, sheep or goats, or a mixture of these. This traditional technique ensures that each cheese has an authentic flavor and exceptional quality.

Characteristics of Picón Cheese
