This product developed when Knockdrinna started out in farmers markets first and had not enough variety of cheese to sell, but we had lots of basil in our garden that year and so we developed this product. Now it has become one of our most popular products.It is made twice a week with fresh basil leaves, Knockdrinna Gold goat cheese, olive oil, garlic and pine nuts. It has no additives or preservative of any kind and keeps fresh for a month once kept refrigerated and topped up with olive oil.Price €5.00 per 180gm Jar

We developed this product, particularly, as an accompaniment to our Knockdrinna Snow, as we discovered in our own experiments at home in the kitchen that red pepper and soft goats cheese are a particularly good combination.Price €3.00 per 100gm Jar
