Murrays Cavemaster Reserve
Little Big Apple

If we can make it here, you can eat it anywhere!

Our cavemaster starts with fluffy white rounds of buttery organic Champlain Valley Triple Cream that have been aged to creamy perfection in our caves. Meanwhile, a gang of mongers heads up to the orchards at Warwick Winery and Distillery to pick apple leaves, which are then soaked in an apple brandy from Black Dirt Distilling. Next, each bloomy round is hand-wrapped with brandy-soaked leaves and tied in place with a piece of twine. We age the cheese a few days more to let the brandy work its magic, resulting in a chic little package that’s full of BIG charisma, an orchard fragrance and an herbal, fruity flavor.

Meet The Maker

The hands that wash the cheese may change, but the title remains the same - Cavemaster. Since the inception of the caves beneath Bleecker Street at Murray's, we've had an expert aboard whose sole purpose is to tend to the hundreds of cheeses lurking below the store. And every now and again, they'll create an entirely new cheese; either by washing, aging or coating, the result always impresses.
