Dubliner is a sweet, granular cheese made from pasteurised cow's milk[1] aged over a year and manufactured by Carbery, located in County Cork, Republic of Ireland.[2] Since 1996, it has been marketed internationally by Ornua (formerly the Irish Dairy Board) under the Kerrygold label.[3] The cheese is named after the city of Dublin, although it is made in County Cork.[1]

The cheese aims to combine the sharpness of mature cheddar and the buttery sweetness of Parmigiano.[4] Dubliner cheese may contain natural calcium lactate cheese crystals, which appear as small white pieces.

History[edit]

John Lucey, an Irishman,[1] created a cheese called "Araglen" in 1990; his goal was to produce an alternative to Cheddar cheese that could be manufactured "using (mostly) existing Cheddar equipment, for sale in Europe."[5] A year later, Carbery Milk Products signed an agreement to commercialize Araglen.[5] Commercial production began in 1994; five years later, it was introduced to the United States, and by 2011, more than 40,000 tonnes (44,000 tons) had been produced for sale in multiple markets.[5]
