Moonshine is to Appalachia what Sozzled Pearl is to Saxelby's. A homespun, booze infused cheese inspired by provencal goats and good old fashioned Kentucky bourbon. The small, fresh buttons are made from a blend of cow and goats' milk and have a light, lactic, and slightly yeasty flavor. At Saxelby's cheese cave in Red Hook, we soak the grape leaves in bourbon and then wrap the cheeses, yielding a finished product that is dense, raisin-y and tobacco-y with a clean, goaty kick in the finish. Each wheel weighs 4oz and is aged 4-6 weeks.
