Full Shipping Details
Crater Lake Blue Cheese is aptly named after one of Oregon’s greatest natural attractions. The pronounced and vibrant blue veins striated across the creamy white paste mirror the clouds over Crater Lake. This robust blue has a silky paste bright with flavors of sweet cream, red fruit, and a sharp finish. From The Rogue Creamery's inauspicious beginnings in 1935 has come one of the finest artisan cheese operations in the world today. In 2002, Ignazio "Ig" Vella (affectionately known as the Godfather of artisan cheese) hand-selected Cary Bryant and David Gremmels as the new owners of what is now known as The Rogue Creamery. Of utmost importance was to carry on the tradition of hand-milled cheese. Bryant and Gremmels hit the ground running. Within a year, they were producing award-winning cheeses, one of which is the gorgeously named Crater Lake Blue.

Crater Lake Blue, the American Cheese Society's 2004 gold medal winner and more recently, June 2006, took home a bronze medal for foil-wrapped, blue-vein cheese made outside the United Kingdom at the World Cheese Awards. It is a contemporary blue cheese. Robust and sweet with a rich buttery finish, it is best described as a blend of Roquefort and Danish blue cheese recipes. Versatile on a cheese plate or in a special recipe. Its complexity of flavor makes it one of the rare blues that can pair perfectly with both Ruby and Tawny ports. Simply an outstanding cheese, Crater Lake Blue is a terrific example of the craftmanship exhibited by today's American cheesemakers.
