Rogue River Blue | 2019 Best Cheese in The World
This divine cheese has just won the award for being the 2019 Best Cheese in the World !
This rare North American benchmark blue cheese is handmade at Rogue Creamery in Oregon, USA for only a few weeks each year during the autumn equinox.
At this time of year the creamery’s single herd of Brown Swiss and Holstein cows are at the end of the natural lactation cycle and their rich concentrated milk is infused with the esters of native grasses, hops, clover, blackberries and wild herbs that grow in the lush grazing pastures that grow beside the Rogue River.
After the young cheeses have been salted and pierced they are hand wrapped in local shiraz vine leaves macerated in pear brandy from nearby Clear Creek, then ripened in the dairy cellars for at least 15 months.
We have very limited stock of this cheese, be quick !
