Back in 2011, Murray's and the Cellars at Jasper Hill embarked on a top secret mission to create an exclusive cheese for Eleven Madison Park's 'Iconic New York' menu. The result was Greensward, a spectacular pasteurized cow's milk cheese that the American Cheese Society crowned as the best washed-rind cheese in the country.

We are now proud to bring you this Special Edition version of our Cavemaster favorite. We’ve used Nought, a dry mead from Enlightenment Wines Meadery, to wash this particular batch of Greensward. Mead is made from fermenting water and honey, and this new release was created using New York State wildflower honey, which lends our classic bacon-y creation some gentle herbaceous, floral notes that make it an instant summer favorite, with the same silky, spoonable texture that you know from the flagship version.

Why the name Greensward? Before Central Park became an oasis of greenery within the concrete jungle of New York City, it was referred to as the "Greensward Plan," an innovative vision that distilled aesthetic balance from lush landscape and urban development. Greensward was the code word for a harmonious, scenic place that was free to all citizens. We created this cheese to have a similar effect on the palate: like an amble through the Sheep Meadow, it's a portal to immediate pastoral bliss.

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 a team of experts aboard whose sole purpose is to tend to the hundreds of cheeses we age ourselves. And every now and again, they'll create an entirely new cheese like Greensward that becomes part of our Cavemaster Reserve series.
