Mursik from Kenya’s Kalenjin community is an esteemed dairy product noted for its exceptional taste and cultural significance to this indigenous group. It comes courtesy from fermenting fresh cow’s milk obtained ideally from Ayrshire breed sources; this process takes up-to three whole days and owing to fermentation, the milk acquires a thickened texture and tangy flavour. Additionally, “olmurunya” bark during brewing imparts the unique albeit smoky back-taste thereby ensuring a discerning Mursik flavor.

The refined product is strained, achieving smoother consistency then poured into intricate traditional sotet kebono gourds. The resultant Mursik can act both as a revitalizing beverage and enhance the flavour of meat sauces or dishes by pairing with staple foods like ugali.
