Kilchurn Estate ®Red Leicester (8 lb.) is made similar to an English Cheddar. It has a sweet, medium-strong flavor and crumbly texture. Red Leicester is made using pasteurized cow’s milk and aged for a minimum of nine months. Ground annatto seeds are added to create a deep russet red color.
The Danish Blue (7 lb.) is subtle and tangy with only mild bleu cheese flavor. It also contains striking green and blue veins throughout and a crumbly texture. The cheese is produced in the eastern most region of Denmark using pasteurized cow’s milk and aged for five to six weeks.
Murcia al Vino
The drunken goat cheese, Murcia al Vino (5 lb.), begins with Murciano-Granadina goats that graze on the rich grass and wild herbs of Southern Spain. Their fresh, pasteurized milk creates an intensely flavorful cheese. The cheese then is dried and immersed in local Murcia wine. The drunken cheese is then aged for an additional 75 days to allow the wine to fully permeate the naturally low-fat cheese.
Tuscan Sheep’s Cheese
This traditional Tuscan sheep’s milk cheese (3 lb.) is cured with salt and aged for 60 days in natural grottos on beechwood boards. The result is a clay-like aroma, smooth, even rind with a semi-firm texture. It is slightly sharp but also contains a nutty taste that improves with age.
