Beecher’s Handmade Cheese - Seattle, Washington
This earthy and sweet clothbound truckle of sheep and cows’ milk cheddar tastes just like candy! The extra aging (12+ months) on these wheels allows intense, caramelized flavors to develop, and also provides the crystalline crunchy bits known as ‘tyrosine’ that made aged cheeses so beloved. The sheeps’ milk lends its own toasted, nutty, and sweet flavors, and the cows’ milk balances things out with its mellow, buttery qualities. A delicious and uniquely American concoction of curds and whey that took home ‘Best in Show’ honors at the American Cheese Society Conference in 2012.
