The Best Cheese Gifts for Father’s Day 2024

Father’s Day is Sunday, June 16th—and if the dad on your list loves cheese, you’ve come to the right place to find the perfect gift. These are our recommendations for cheese gifts that dads will love—and if you can’t decide, let Dad do the shopping with a digital gift card that’s good for any of the cheese, gear, tastings, kits, and classes in our online store

Explore Spirit-Infused Cheeses & Pairings

For Father's Day we're celebrating with inventive cheeses that take whiskey, Scotch ale, and tequila and infuse them into the cheese curds before aging.  The result is a depth of flavor and an essence of each spirit that pairs wonderfully with spicy chorizo, Spanish romesco, and freshly-dried crispy orange slices.  

Tulip Tree Creamery is producing a limited-release of White Oak cheese — exclusively for us!— featuring a Kentucky whiskey, Fortune's Fool, which is one of the only female-owned whiskey brands in the United States. Lively Run Dairy's Shire Gouda is made in collaboration with New York's Hopshire Farm & Brewery, where their Shire Scotch ale is blended with the curds before forming the final cheese. Deer Creek Cheese's The Rattlesnake is an exceptional flavor experience — spicy, sweet, tropical, and HOT. They start with a smooth, creamy, medium aged Cheddar curd recipe and infuse it with premium gold tequila and Habanero peppers. 

Place your order by Thursday, June 6th.  All Father's Day orders ship Monday, June 10th.

American Artisan Cheese Subscriptions

Want Dad to feel the love (and remember your great gift) well beyond Father’s Day? Consider a monthly or quarterly artisan cheese subscription, which will introduce him to new makers with each shipment. 

Cheese Boards and Knives

Maybe Dad has the cheese sourcing on lock, but his gear collection could use some new toys. Check out our collection of sleek yet sturdy servingware, from our hand-carved bamboo knives to our new writable black resin cheese knife, which lets you label each utensil with its corresponding cheese. We’ve got circular slates, swanky servers, and even home cheesemaking kits, too. 

Cheese Storage

Get Dad “the Mercedes-Benz of cheese”—a Cheese Grotto of his very own! Go for the roomy Classico if he’s a serious connoisseur (or likes to make and age cheese at home), the Fresco for regular cheese eaters, the Mezzo for more casual consumers (or smaller spaces), or the petite Piatto for the dad who likes to focus on a single great wedge at a time. 

If he’s a real gearhead, make sure to pick up a hygrometer to go with it. That way, he can make sure the humidity inside the Grotto is always on point. 

Cheese Experiences

If you are lucky enough to get to hang out with Dad on Father’s Day and want to show him you care with a beautiful cheese board or cheese and beverage tasting, we’ve got a ton of great guides you can use! 

Here’s how to build the ultimate cheese board. And you can learn how to combine cheese with all kinds of delicious drinks—like whiskey, amaro, beer gin, and wine, not to mention honey, chocolate, jam, and sweets—with our pairing guides.  

If you really want to put yourself into a Father’s Day gift this year, you can make Dad some homemade cheese like mozzarella, ricotta, mascarpone, feta, or even fresh chevre. And if you’re making brunch, dinner, or any meal in between for the occasion, check out our summer cheese recipes and our grilling with cheese guide!

Shipping Details


If you have purchased cheese hardware from our Grotto collection, it usually takes us 1 to 3 business days to ship your order, unless otherwise listed on the respective product page.

Cheese Orders

As the cheeses are a fresh product, we want to ensure the quickest transit time as possible, so your order arrives in the best possible condition.  Express shipping costs range from $25 - $55 depending on the package size, delivery window, location and carrier. We ship Mondays only each week, and orders must be placed by Thursday the week prior to be included in Monday's shipments.  If you purchased a cheese subscription with a set shipping schedule (Meet the Makers or any Gift Subscription), please refer to the respective product page for the fixed shipping schedule.

Please note: cheese ships from our cheese warehouse and hardware ships from our hardware warehouse. If you are purchasing both hardware and cheese, there will be a shipping charge for the cheese portion of your order.

International Orders

We are sorry, but we aren't legally allowed to ship cheese across the US border!  We can, however, ship our hardware from our Grotto collection worldwide.  Please note that the shipping costs options you see at checkout do not include customs, duties, and taxes which will be billed to you upon reaching the border, and will be an additional expense.  Those costs vary from country to country, but we recommend calculating at an additional 20% charge. If you refuse the package due to these additional fees and the hardware is returned to us, we will be able to issue a refund minus the outbound and return shipping costs.
