Taste
Both the cow and sheep milk come from the Dalmatian hinterland from carefully selected family farms where natural grasses and hey are used.

Matured for an extended period and released for sale after 8 months, Zigljen is an excellent and original blend of Dalmatian cow (80%) and sheep (20%) milk. This extra mature version carries added complexity and strength while the texture is much harder and crumbly. The balance between sweet and salt is incredible and you'll savour the long finish to the last.


Background
A personal creation of master cheesemaker Ivan Gligora, who in the early days of Sirana Gligora would buy Dalmatian cow milk to mix with Pag sheep milk when he couldn't source enough for the production of Paski sir - thus his first new cheese was born and named after the ferry port from the island to the mainland. Today both the cow and sheep milk come from the Dalmatian hinterland and the recipe and method is much improved. Crowned the Best Mixed Milk Cheese in the World in 2011 at the World Cheese Awards in the UK.
