GIFT BOX INCLUDES
Landaff - This raw milk, Welsh-style cheddar is made by Landaff Creamery in New Hampshire and aged here at The Cellars at Jasper Hill. With a semi-firm texture and subtle aromas of cave and grass, it’s balanced complexity harmonizes a bright buttermilk tang and savory brown butter notes. Makes a great melting cheese. (1/2lb wedge)
Harbison - Winner of the 2018 ACS Conference Best of Show, this soft-ripened cheese is wrapped in spruce cambium and has a rustic, bloomy rind. It’s woodsy and sweet, balanced with lemon, mustard, and vegetal flavors with a lovely spoonable texture. (9oz wheel)
Bayley Hazen Blue - Winner of the 2018 ACS Conference Best in Class and made with raw milk, this natural rind blue is known for its fudge-like texture, toasted-nut sweetness, and anise spice character. The paste is dense and creamy, with well-distributed blue veins. (1/2lb wedge)
Little Hosmer - Little Hosmer is an approachable and nuanced soft ripened cheese. Beneath its thin, bloomy-rind lies a gooey, milky core showing a complex array of flavors at peak ripeness: cauliflower, crème fraîche, and toasted nuts. A bright, clean finish with a hint of white mushroom aroma follows the rich flavors of the paste. (4oz wheel)
Willoughby -This succulent and buttery washed-rind cheese has aromas of peat, roasted beef and onions - a strong and complex front for the subtle milky, herbal, ripe-peach flavors within. (8oz wheel)
Alpha Tolman - Inspired by Alpine cheeses like Appenzeller and Gruyere, this Jasper Hill Creamery original is made with raw milk and has a buttery, fruit & nut flavor when young, developing bold meaty, caramelized onion flavors as it matures. The texture is dense and pliant, easily portioned and ideal for melting. (1lb wedge)
VT99 Meats Dry-cured Salami - Handmade in small batches with local Vermont Pork, our dry-cured salami is made with a traditional recipe, meant to showcase the flavors of the meat. Makes an exceptional pairing with any of our cheeses.
Jans Farmhouse Crisps - Made in Vermont, these herbaceous crisps are chock-full of grains, nuts & dried fruit, but sliced thinly for a light, crispy texture. We haven't met a cheese that these don't like! (4oz box)
Nutty Steph’s Toffee Coffee Dark Chocolate Bar - This Vermont-made artisan chocolate bar is made with 70% dark Ecuadorian chocolate, blended with crunchy maple toffee pieces and aromatic coffee. An exceptional pairing with our Bayley Hazen Blue. (2.4oz bar)
Confit of Plums with Port & Star Anise - Designed to pair with Bayley Hazen Blue, this preserve combines the brightness of fresh plums with the complexity of dried prunes, balanced by simmered apples and raisins scented with port & star anise. We also love it on a grilled-cheese sandwich or as a marinade for pork. (10oz jar)
Squirrel Stash "Tapped" Maple Nuts - A Vermont maple twist on a German roasted nut made with love in small batches. (3oz package)
Packaged in your choice of a standard or rustic wooden gift box.
