This collection includes:
- Aries by Shooting Star Creamery: Aries is an aged sheep's milk cheese created in the style of a traditional Alpine cheese. Aged for eight months, Aries has a fresh, buttermilk flavor and subtle fruitiness that hints on notes of pineapple. The creamy, yet firm, texture and earthy, caramel-like aromas make this sheep's milk cheese stand out among the rest. Central Coast Creamery owner Reggie Jones asked his daughter, Avery Jones, if she wanted to try her hand at artisan cheese making. Soon, they set up a separate creamery that was based on Central Coast Creamery to allow Avery to take risks with the cheese as well as to have something to base her recipes on. Shooting Star Creamery, in Paso Robles, CA, was born to reflect Avery and her father's belief of shooting for the stars. And did she ever! At age 15, Avery debuted her cheese Aries at the competitive American Cheese Society awards in 2019, winning 3rd Place overall. With 1,742 entries, we'd say she rocked it! This award-winning cheese from Shooting Star Creamery is a nice addition shaved into a salad with fruit or chunked on its own with honeycomb. (7.5 oz)
- Istara Ossau-Iraty :From the same company that makes our ever-popular P'tit Basque, comes Istara. The generic name for this cheese is Ossau-Iraty, which refers to two rivers in the Basque region of France - the homeland of this spectacularly delicious cheese. Also called Brebis Pyrenees, which is simply French for Sheep Cheese from the Pyrenees, Istara has a smooth, slightly oily texture and a wonderfully sweet flavor with hints of olive, hazelnut and fig. Aged for 90 days.(7.5 oz)
- Cabot Clothbound Cheddar: In 2003, Cabot Creamery asked Jasper Hill Farm to age a special batch of English-style clothbound cheddar. This was the beginning of a revolutionary partnership. Cabot Clothbound is a handsome natural-rinded traditional cheddar. Bandaged with muslin and skillfully aged a minimum of 10 months at the Cellars at Jasper Hill. Cabot Clothbound has all the characteristic texture of an English-style cheddar with the sweet caramel and milky flavors that sets it apart from other bandaged cheddars. The flavor profile is at once sweet, savory, nutty, and tangy. Cabot Creamery was one of the first family farm cooperatives in Vermont, and today they are widely known for making exceptional American-style block Cheddar. Kempton Family Farm in Peacham, VT has been selected as the sole source for Clothbound, and Cabot crafts this cheese the old-world way - one vat at a time. (7.5 oz)
