Malacara was originally produced by Quesos Iniesta utilizing two different breeds of sheep native to Spain, keeping it from attaining DOP status as a Manchego. More recently though, they have made the transition to utilizing solely milk of the La Mancha sheep, as required to be called a DOP Manchego. Utilizing slight variations in production methods, Felix Iniesta is able to craft a Manchego with a slightly different profile than is usual.
