Brebis au piment d’Espelette is a firm sheep’s milk cheese, rubbed with pimento powder, made in the Basques region of southern France. The pimento taste comes through as lightly fruity rather than piquant.  A small amount of ground red pimento is mixed in with the milk. The cheese is brushed with crushed, smoked Espelette Chile Pepper powder, then aged for at least 3 months.
