Extra-Aged Appalachian

Extra-Aged Appalachian

Recently featured in the New York Times "Front Burner" column, this long-aged version of our original recipe Appalachian is aged for over eight month in our cellars. The extra age turns Appalachian into a lush, fruity cheese with overtones of toasted butter, with a mushroom earthiness that recalls the intensity of the cellars and a tangy, smooth finish. The texture is firm but velvety, melting on the tongue.

Mini Grayson

Mini Grayson

A small format version of our bestselling cheese, Minis are washed for two months in our cellars with Hardywood’s Singel ale. These petit beauties have Grayson’s classic washed rind earthiness, complimented by the smooth, yeasty beer flavor, with subtle notes of cream and a rich fruity finish. The texture is spreadably silky and melting right up to the reddish-yellow rind. Each Mini is between two-thirds and three-quarters of a pound.

Smoke-Finished

Smoke-Finished

Note: Our most recent batch of smoked Appalachian will be ready to ship March 15th.

 

Available exclusively from our online store -- our newest experiment! Aged the usual two to six months in our cellar, these cheeses have then been "finished" by cold-smoking them with a mix of hickory and applewood chips. The result is a subtle  smoky flavor which compliments the cheese without overwhelming it. The smoking process also gives a lovely velvety texture to the finished cheese. 

 

Our smoke-finished Appalachian comes in a seven-ounce wedge; our Mini Grayson is smoke-finished as a whole wheel, usually weighing in between ten and twelve ounces.
