Plymouth Cheese

Plymouth Artisan Cheese is a Vermont company from the United States that produces artisanal cheese from raw cow’s milk. One of the oldest cheese producers in the country, the factory was founded by John Coolidge – father of the 30th President of United States, Calvin Coolidge.

Original Plymouth is a granular curd cheese that requires a minimum of 10 months of maturation in cellars before it is ready to be introduced to customers. Made using recipes dating to the late 1800s, this waxed rind cheese is a cross between traditional farmhouse cheddar and Colby.

The full bodied, tangy and rich flavours of Plymouth are a resultant of its intense ageing. It is a sharp cheese with notes of butter, fruit and nuts. Suits palates that are used to strong cheese flavours.

The company also makes a smoked version of Plymouth cheese and an aged, two year version of Original Plymouth called Hunter cheese.
