Tintus Cheese

The superb Flor de Cardo Tintus is a semi-soft sheep cheese with a fruity, wine like flavor. The outside of Tintus is mottled with red, white, beige and gray streaks on a burlap textured rind. This cheese is made from unpasteurized milk and coagulated with thistle flower. Produced in Setúbal region, south of Lisbon, comfortably embraced by the Sado river (with its dolphins) and Arrábida, its most precious treasures, which fortunately enjoy the status of protected areas. This happy coincidence has enabled Setúbal to be admitted to the exclusive and coveted Club of the Most Beautiful Bays in the World. This distinction has served to reinforce the quality of its fine sandy beaches and clear blue waters, offering superb conditions for water sports such as canoeing, sailing, windsurfing, water-skiing, angling and diving.
