The king of cheese is made in 200-pound wheels from fresh, raw milk produced by grass-fed cows on family farms. Expert cheesemakers then age it for a minimum of 4 months in the microclimate of the Emmi cellars.
Firm yet supple, Emmentaler AOP offers a nutty flavor with slight acidity and just a hint of herbs.
Sometimes compared to Brie, Fromager d'Affinois has a white, flossy rind but the interior paste is much more ivory in color. The texture is soft, smooth and yielding, with a tendency to become runny under the rind and remain quite a bit firmer in the center - thereby creating two textures in one.
Flavors are mild and subdued, with notes of salt and a slight hint of mushrooms.
Pairs well with many wines. However, it goes particularly well with champagne or sparkling wine, since the effervescence cuts the richness of the cheese and cleanses the palate.
Infused with the robust flavor of whiskey, Kerrygold’s rich and creamy Aged Cheddar now has unique undertones of the smooth, woody, and nutty taste of pure Irish Whiskey. Entrenched in the history and traditions of Ireland, Cheddar and whiskey are now together in one spirited Irish grass-fed cow’s milk cheese.
This tasty combination is the perfect complement to your party’s gourmet cheese platter and is also a unique gift item.
