New Cheese Arrivals-07/05/08

Strong Cheese Week

In conjuction with our strong beer month we bring you some of the most pungent wash rind cheeses on the market:

Winnimere- Raw cow's milk cheese washed with lambic beer and then wrapped in spruce bark. This is a beautiful triple creme cheese with a woodsy flavor and a slightly sour finish from the beer.

Mont St. Francis- Raw goat's milk wash rind cheese. Nice ruby red rind, cheese is rich, beefy, and deliciously aromatic. This cheese was one of the first great washed rinds in America.

Morbier-Is smooth, silky, supple, and happily smelly. Proudly sporting a sticky washed and brushed rind, the raw cow milk cheese is aged for four months to result in a sweet cheese with a buttery pungency and a line of ash in the center

Sir Francis Drake- Very limited release from cow girl creamery. Soft and creamy cow's milk wash rind cheese that is probably the mildest of the bunch. Spreadable texture with a mildly sweet berry flavor from the currant skins the cheese is wrapped in.
