  1. Emmentaler, 18 Months Quick View

    Emmentaler, 18 Months

    $28.99/LB
    Holy cow. You haven't tasted Emmentaler until you've tasted this 18 month giant. Though you may be very familiar with this cheese’s much younger sibling from sandwiches of yore, this Slow Food-certified Swiss is in its own class of flavor. Aged for 2 years, it resembles Parmigiano more than the Swiss you'd find in a deli. The alpine cows whose milk creates these 200 pound wheels are treated to a high-altitude diet of wild grasses, herbs, and flowers, which gives the cheese a slightly spicy, savory and nutty profile. Alpine perfection. Read More
  2. Hamden Quick View

    Vulto Creamery
    Hamden

    $34.99/LB
    Named for the next hamlet over from Vulto creamery in Walton, NY, Hamden is cheese gone wild. Its birth story: cheesemaker Jos Vulto took a few wheels from their Ouleout batch and let them free to develop their own natural rind. Lo and behold: a rich diversity of molds and yeasts on the rind for plenty of earthy crunch. Its semi-soft paste tastes of the valley in spring—fresh milk, just-cut grass, hay. Hamden is Tomme de Savoie’s Hudson Valley soul sister. It begs for farmhouse ale, a crusty baguette, and ripe stone fruit. Jos Vulto left his career as a metal-worker to follow the siren-call of cheesemaking. He started out in his Brooklyn apartment, crafting cheese in his kitchen and aging his wheels beneath the sidewalk. In 2012, he opened a real-deal operation in New York’s western Catskills. We’re happy he did. He sources milk his neighbor, farmer Dan Finn’s herd of Holstein and Jersey cows and makes raw milk beauties full of charisma and depth. Read More
  3. Pria Azul Quick View

    Pria Azul

    $25.99/EA
    This rustic beauty hails from Asturias, in the misty mountains hugging the Northern coast of Spain. Pria Azul is a unique blend of 50% cow, 40% sheep and 10% goat’s milk, and is a far cry from other aggressive Spanish blue cheeses. The fresh wheels are both pierced to create bluing and also smoked, then aged to create a gorgeous natural rind. This process results in a incredibly creamy and milky paste, subtely gamey and smokey, with a perfect flavor trifecta of sweet, salty and savory. A must with port and luscious dark chocolate.

  4. Gubbeen Quick View

    Gubbeen

    $31.99/LB
    Made with pasteurized cow's milk by Tom and Giana Ferguson in County Cork and distributed by Neal's Yard Dairy, this washed rind could be Ireland’s answer to Reblochon … and then some! This soft, washed rind made with vegetarian rennet has a pliable texture and a pinkish-orange rind. The aroma in the ripening cellar will remind you of mushrooms where it is matured for 4-8 weeks. Full-bodied, earthy, nutty… lovely, lovely and lovely. Read More
  5. Great Hill Blue Quick View

    Great Hill Blue

    $24.99/LB
    Great Hill Dairy makes one and only one cheese beauty: Great Hill Blue. They craft their rindless, clean-flavored blue in Buzzard Bay, 50 miles south of Boston, with unpasteurized, unhomogenized milk from their own Guernseys, plus Jersey and Holstein cows from neighboring farms. Inhale: toasty, salty aromas. Get ready for bright, acidic tanginess, with just a hint of peppery bite. Great Hill Blue’s not shy about salt and zip. Crumbly and curdy, it shines melted on a burger or crumbled on a wedge salad. Or serve post-dinner with a Tawny Port or a fruity Icewine to curb all that brawn and bite. Read More
  6. Miranda Quick View

    Vulto Creamery
    Miranda

    $18.99/EA
    A tribute like no other, this Absinthe-washed masterpiece is named for cheese-maker Jos Vulto’s late wife who wished to have a cheese named after her. Made with raw cow’s milk at his creamery in the Catskills and washed in a locally produced Absinthe called Meadow of Love, the light orange rind imparts bright herbaceouness to the lightly bubbled, savory interior. The cheese’s meaty paste complements a pairing of smoky speck and tangy pickles. Read More
  7. Asiago D'Allevo Quick View

    Asiago D'Allevo

    $18.99/LB
    With flavors reminiscent of the fragrances of yeast and dried fruit, this firm raw cow milk cheese starts out sweet and becomes more savory and piquant as it ages. From Italy's Po River Valley. Read More
  8. Weinkase Lagrein Quick View

    Weinkase Lagrein

    $22.99/LB
    Don't be duped by the name; in German it means 'wine cheese,' but this unusual tomme is actually from northern Italy. Soaked in Lagrein wine and spices, it's creamy, lightly peppery, and a bit garlicky; like super-fancy beef jerky. Read More
  9. Cave Aged Project X Quick View

    CaveMaster Reserve
    Project X

    $24.99/LB
    From the hidden laboratories deep within Murray’s Caves, our newest experiment emerges: Project X! A collaboration with Spring Brook farm in Vermont, this raw cow’s milk tomme takes its inspiration from the rugged mountain cheeses of Italy, with our own Northeast twist. We coat these wheels with a generous helping of herbaceous fennel pollen, followed by repeated bathing in Gewurztraminer from New York’s Finger Lakes. The result is incredible: lusciously moist, with flavors of roasted walnuts, cocoa and anise. Equally at home on a cheese board or melted in pasta, with a glass of Alpine-style white wine. Read More
