This Trappist cheese has been manufactured by the monks of the Mont-des-Cats Abbey, located between Lille and Dunkirk, since 1890. The cheese is produced by hand using milk from twenty-five nearby farms. These pressed cheeses are matured for at least a month in the Abbey cellars and are regularly washed.
