Long Description

Sappy Ewe, 6oz - We are obsessed with the subtle sweet, woodsy, and savory characteristics of this cheese. Sheep and cow curds are coated with an Adirondack maple reduction and then formed into a crottin size mold. They age to bloomy rind perfection in the cave and then pat them with edible pine black ash for a dramatic finish and ripening effect. This cheese is a true symphony of traditional Adirondack flavors and won First Place at the U.S. Cheese Championships in 2019, Second Place for Mixed milk cheeses at the American Cheese Society in 2018.

Milk: Pasteurized Sheep and Cow Milk
Rennet: Microbial Rennet (Vegetarian)
Age: 3 to 4 weeks maximum

Kunik, 12oz - Kunik is a bloomy rind triple crème wheel made from goat’s milk and cow cream. It has been showered with cheese awards over the years, including a 2016 World Cheese Championship Gold Medal, a 2010 American Cheese Society Triple Crème Blue Ribbon, and a 2018 & 2020 Good Food Award. It is pleasantly rich and decadent, and is best enjoyed at room temperature when the buttery, salty notes of the cheese come to life.

Milk: Pasteurized Cow Cream and Goat Milk
Rennet: Microbial Rennet (Vegetarian)
Age: 3 to 4 weeks maximum

Amber Kunik, 12oz - The iconic Kunik triple crème is washed in Adirondack Beer and Adirondack Whiskey. This funky twist results in a denser velvety textured washed rind with just a hint of spirits and balanced with plenty of funk. Winner of the 2019 Silver Sofi for Non-Cow Cheeses.

Milk: Pasteurized Cow Cream and Goat Milk
Rennet: Microbial Rennet (Vegetarian)
Age: 3 to 4 weeks maximum

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.
