Black pepper, allspice, thyme, cayenne, cinnamon, nutmeg, and bay leaves lend a symphony of flavor to Beecher’s Jerk Spice cheese. The result is a sweet, nutty semi-firm cheese with a kick of spice and irresistable smoky aroma reminiscent of the best barbecue. Dig into this Jamaican-inspired masterpiece with Pacific Pickle Works Asparagusto! and Brooklyn Cured Sliced Spicy Beef Salami for a celebration of bold flavor.

- Beecher’s Jerk Spice cheese is made in a similar way to their Flagship—with cheddar and Gruyère cultures and the cheddaring process.
- Cheddar dates back to the Middle Ages, with origins in the village of Cheddar located in Somerset, England. The term cheddar refers not only to a style of cheese but also the process used to make it.
- Cheddaring is a technique where, after the curd is cooked and whey is drained, the curds are piled and cut into long slabs, which are turned and stacked over and over, consolidating and firming up as the rest of the whey drains.
- The term jerk refers to a method of seasoning, smoking, and grilling meat. The art of jerking (or cooking with jerk spice) originated with the Arawak and Taíno tribes in Jamaica. It has a rich history and embodies a multidimensional cultural tradition.
- Modern recipes for jerk seasoning often include allspice, thyme, Scotch bonnet peppers, scallions, and ginger.
- In 2003, lifelong cheese lover Kurt Beecher Dammeier opened Beecher’s Handmade Cheese in Seattle’s historic Pike Place Market.
- Visitors can watch their favorite cheeses come to life through Beecher’s glass-walled cheesemaking locations.
- Beecher’s uses traditional methods perfected by cheesemakers over thousands of years and crafts cheeses free of artificial ingredients and colors. The premium milk used to produce Beecher’s cheese contains no added rBST.
- From their signature Flagship cheese to extra-aged varieties, clothbound wheels to exciting flavored options, their products are as delicious as the fresh milk they’re made from, which comes from local farms.
