There is no better time to share the indulgent pleasure of Malagos Farmhouse’s artisanal cheese selections and Malagos single-origin chocolates and craft beer for a magnificent treat of proudly Philippine-made world-class products.

 

Malagos Farmhouse Cheeses

Made from fresh pasteurized goat’s milk collected daily from Malagos Dairy, Chevre is best enjoyed after production, when the creamy and tangy combination of the cheese is apparent and the gentle hint of earthy notes are discernible. Priced at P260 for a 150-gram pack.

The popular Pesto Sublime is created with blended goat and cow’s milk. Done in the style of Chevre, it takes in a new flavor with the addition of Malagos Farmhouse Pesto. Available for P280 for a 150-gram pack.

Made from fresh cow’s milk, Blue Peppato is noticeable for the addition of green peppercorns, providing a contrast to the creamy texture of the finished cheese and a distinct aroma. Available for P343.50 in a 150-gram retail pack.

Fresh cow’s milk is used to make Queso Rustico which s formed into 18-inch wheels. This washed rind cheese is characterized by a hard outer rind which hides an aromatic golden pate. Aviailable in 150-gram packs for P343.50.

Rosita is a washed rind cow’s milk cheese, which takes a rosy exterior with a dusting of white mold. The velvety finish softens its bold flavor with a slightly nutty finish. Available in 150-gram wedges at P 343.50.

A new introduction to Malagos Farmhouse, Ingrid’s Rosemary was developed by cheesemaker Olive Puentespina’s daughter and fellow cheesemaker, Ingrid. Using fresh cow’s milk, this cheese is made in the style of Gouda, but then transformed into a creamy aged cheese with the use of high fat milk. It is available infused with fresh rosemary and with fresh turmeric for P343.50 in a 150-gram pack.

Malagos Chocolate

The famed Malagos Dark Collection comes in attractive bespoke boxes, with an assortment of Malagos chocolate at 65%, 72%, and 85% dark. Prices start at P800 for two pieces.

The Malagos Dark Collection with Book comes in a beautiful gift box specially designed for Malagos, and includes a copy of the Malagos Book of Chocolate, plus two award-winning 100-gram bars. The set is available for P2,500.

An international bestseller, Malagos 100% Pure Unsweetened Chocolate is perfect for hot and cold chocolate drinks, and elegantly presented in a sandy tinplate and matte finished can. Priced at P350 for a 252-gram can.

The Malagos Fruit Collection features a choice of dried mango, pineapple, guyabano, and young coconut enrobed with Malagos’ dark couverture chocolate for an enjoyable and highly addicting nibble. Dried Young Coconut costs P375, while Dried Guyabano, Pineapple, and Mango are at P350.

The only thing to fear about these Malagos Dragées—couverture chocolate-covered almonds and coffee beans—is how to stop gorging on these bites. Each can costs P450.
