Product Details

Finding a blue cheese recipe penned by Basil Weixler in 1902. Originally the recipe was supposed to rival French roquefort, but things didn’t go exactly to plan. Blue cheese cultures are added directly to the fresh milk, creating a creamy, barely blue wheel that is a testament to high quality Alpine milk of the local dairies. Sweet, lactic, and buttery the bright acidity of this cheese seems to mask the grassy, spicy notes of the blue. Mouth-coating and decadent, this blue is for everyone. Pair with a pour of cherry brandy.
