  • $14.49


Danbo is a semi-soft, matured and aged Danish cheese made from cow’s milk. A smear-ripened and washed-rind cheese, it is one of Denmark’s most popular cheeses. The cheese is ivory-colored to light yellow with a soft and slightly supple texture. The cheese allows for easy cutting. The smell of Danbo is mild, slightly acidic, and aromatic due to smear ripening. As the cheese ages, the smell and taste become better defined. Its taste and texture is achieved after maturing it for 3-4 weeks.

Flavorings such as caraway seeds add a new dimension to the taste of Danbo. When caraway seeds are added to the cheese, Danbo is also known as "King Christian” cheese, named after King Christian IX who ruled Denmark during the late 19th and early 20th century.

Dry white wines, rose wines and light, velvety red wines go best with Danbo.
