Marine – Yes Guest – How did this idea come to you? Did you have any experience before? Marine – I’m a biochemist, we had some cows Marine – at first we produced “chanax” and “lori” cheese (local types of cheese) Marine – but on some day we decided to change our production and make it more unique Guest – So you’re doing this cheese within one year, right Marine – yes, this is cheese with cognac Marine – At the beginning you need to process it more often Marine – if the cheese became hard, it doesn’t require a lot of care Guest – is it your exclusive? Marine – Yes, I made my own recipe Marine – I process cheese brandy like this Marine – at the initial stage when we were developing a new cheese, we spoiled 3 tons of milk Marine – It is also very difficult to make ecological clean sire without preservatives.
