Mahón-Menorca is a full-fat pressed paste cheese, made from pasteurized or raw full-fat milk from Brown Swiss, Friesian or Menorcan cows. This cheese is traditionally manufactured on the island of Menorca from local cows' milk. The milk must be fresh and without any preservatives or processed in any way.

Molded by hand and wrapped in a cotton cloth, Mahón cheese is then ripened for at least 21 days, and can be cured for up to 150 days. The flavor of this cheese is intense and complex, with a slight tang combined with notes of butter and hazelnuts. Mahón is periodically rubbed with olive oil and pimenton paprika, which gives its characteristic color and aroma.
