Murray's Cavemaster Reserve Hollander Special Edition

$34.99/Lb


Imagine layering slowly smoked meat and slightly tart, slightly brandied cherries over a fresh, yeasty loaf of bread—that’s what this Special Edition Hollander tastes like. Perfectly pudgy and the slightest bit funky, it’s one of those cheeses that makes a stunning first impression and never gets predictable or one-note. 



How did we come up with this version of Hollander? Last fall, our pals at Goose Island Brewery approached us about a collaboration. They wanted to know what a cheese washed with their beer would taste like. So we set to work finding out. Our caves team realized that Madame Rose—Goose Island’s farmhouse cherry ale—would work great with a sheep’s milk cheese. As it happens, our Cavemaster Reserve Hollander is such a thing, so we washed a batch, aged them in our caves, and just like that these lovely little wheels came into the world.
