Deer Creek Cheese | The Stag Clothbound Cheddar

$28.00

Long Description

Select vats of Deer Creek's younger cheddar, The Fawn, are chosen for further aging to allow for the development of the intense, bold, yet balanced flavor characteristics of The Stag.

This complex cheddar tastes like the cheddar of the founder's youth: buttered popcorn on the nose, with a bright lemon curd acidity that evolves into rich toffee and cured meat flavor characteristics.

At 17 months old, The Stag features gloriously crunchy protein crystals that provide that burst of fruitiness ;while maintaining its flaky, creamy texture. A traditional bandage-wrapped 22 lb. daisy wheel cheddar, The Stag is a true Wisconsin Original.. Chosen as one of the “101 Best Cheeses of the Year” by Culture Magazine.

The Cheese Grotto is fantastic - it keeps my blocks of cheese fresher for longer periods of time, unwrapped in all their glory.

It really does extend the life of cheese over time. Aside from the functionality, the Cheese Grotto looks great and is easy to maintain.

Spring Goat

I wanted to love this Spring Mother’s Day Cheese Gift Box so much. It arrived ready to be served. It was no longer cold and the box was extremely fragrant. Disappointed that the selection was three goat cheeses. Would have preferred an assortment; cow, sheep, blue, etc. I will give it a go one more time.

Shipping Details

Hardware

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.
