Willoughby is an exclusive Jasper Hill Farm creation, a creamery that not only makes cheeses but also offers cheese maturing caves for other Vermont based producers. The cheese was originally created by Marisa Mauro's Ploughgate Creamery, but after a fire in 2011, Jaspers resurrected the recipe and continue to make it at their farm.

This washed rind cheese is made from pasteurized cow's milk. It has a semi-soft, buttery texture with occasional eyes and pale yellow-caramel paste. Flavours range from delicate milky, herbal, ripe-peach that advance into peat, roasted beef and onions aromas imparted by the rind.

Willoughby pairs perfectly with a Rose, Saison beer or raw floral honey.
