|Jorge Puerto with cheeses from the El Gazul range|
Alcalá's "Super Oro" prizewinning entry was an organic cheese made from the milk of a special flock of Payoya goats and branded as "Montes de Alcalá". The other cheeses produced at El Gazul are made using blended milk from different flocks, so cannot officially carry the label "organic", though they are undoubtedly "free-range".
In all, 28 cheeses from Cádiz Province won awards this year, making artisan cheese production one of the few growth industries in the region. The others came from dairies in Villaluenga and El Bosque, in the northeast of the Sierra de Cádiz.
The Quesería El Gazul has a shop on the Poligono La Palmosa (behind the hotel), open until 2 pm. To purchase our wonderful cheeses online, visit the website of La Alacena.
