Le Brin is a farmhouse cheese traditionally produced in the Rhone-Alps region of France that is made from cow’s milk with a washed rind. It is a milder and sweeter version of typical French washed rind cheeses which are highly aromatic and fully flavored. It is made with a vegetarian rennet. The cheese is produced in a hexagonal shape by the Guilloteau creamery.  The end result is a creamy and spreadable paste with a reddish orange edible rind.
