Kerry Gold aged Cheddar with Irish Whiskey

mac_cheese_01

Infused with the robust flavor of whiskey, Kerry Gold’s rich and creamy Aged Cheddar has unique undertones of 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. The Cheddar is sharp with an acidity that rides up the sides of your tongue and the finish is long.  The texture is fudge-like and chewy, with a buttery, nutty bite that the whiskey only improves.

Kerry Gold cheeses are made at a Co-op owned company that is owned by its farmer members.  The milk comes from grass fed cows from a number of dairies.  The cows are free to roam in the fresh air and feed of the lush pastures of tender grass.  The milk produced from this environment is rich in beta-carotene.

This cheese turns into an excellent mac n’cheese and an even better cheese sauce atop potatoes, cauliflower or cabbage.

Pairs well with dark Ales or a robust Zinfandel
