Beecher’s Flagship

A blend of cheddar and gruyere, Beecher's Flagship is an American award winning cheese handmade at the Pike Place market in Seattle. The semi-hard cow's milk cheese is left to cave age for at least 15 months to develop a uniquely robust, nutty flavour and distinctive crumble.

Flagship Reserve is a special version, which uses only last curds of the milk when its composition is just right. It is richer in taste & texture with a clean and creamy finish. In addition, the wheels are bandaged in cheesecloth and open-aged for over a year to allow optimum moisture loss during aging, focusing on the rich flavour with a long finish.

Beecher's Flagship is an artisanal cheese that is served best on a cheese plate. Crumble into an omelette or frittata or add to make your favourite Mac & Cheese.

Yule Käse is a unique version of Flagship Reserve cheese. The cheese is clothbound and aged for 13 months in open-air. In addtion, it is further aged in red wine and blackberry honey that gives nutty and caramel flavour with hints of honey and berries.
