Paski Sir (Pag chees)
Produced exclusively from the milk of the autochthonous sheep on the Island of Pag, Paški Sir is the most awarded ewes’ milk cheese in all of Croatia.
Paski Sir is a protected source product and has received numerous awards and honours.
Gligora Paski Sir has a peculiar and subtle piquant taste and smell, it crumbles and melts in your mouth.
Our Paški Sir is decorated with prestigious awards from across Europe. This is how the international chefs and sommeliers from the prestigious culinary association of the International Taste and Quality Institute in Brussels described our Paški Sir: "Sirana Gligora Paški Sir is a wonderfully tasteful sheep milk cheese that brings full and complex flavours to the palate and melts nicely in the mouth. Authentic and unique, This cheese is a pure delight and displays quality in the making, leaving a long and pleasant aftertaste to savour. A yellowish creamy colour with farmhouse aromas, Sirana Gligora’s Paški Sir has well balanced texture, taste, aromas and finish and is delightfully tasty."
Made from 100% ewes’ milk from the Island of Pag, the quality is in the taste…
Aged for a minimum of 6 months in our specially built limestone cave, we also sell at 12 and 18 months but only release the cheese at the optimum time. Our Paški Sir is a delight at any age but with detailed care and testing from our team of experienced affinures, Stari (mature) Paški Sir will bring to you a much fuller flavour and longer finish.
For ideal storing condition, keep Paški Sir between 12°C and 16°C with the relative humidity between 75 and 85% in a cold room or refrigerated, keep separate from other foods. For daily consumption, we recommend that our pre-packed Paški Sir be kept in the refrigerator.
To serve Paški Sir, cut into triangular slices and leave the rind on the edge. Best served at room temperature and can be preserved in Olive Oil as a whole or in slices. Pršut (Dalmatian double smoked ham) is a perfect accompaniment, along with salted anchovies, white bread or Paške bubice (Pag dough) with black olives. Alternatively, Gligora Paški Sir goes perfectly with grapes and Pag's Sage Honey along with Olive Oil from Lun on the Island of Pag.
Full matured Paški Sir is excellent with local dishes such as gnocchi, risotto, macaroni or polenta.
