Juniper Berry Infused Quintuple Crème Blue

Gold Winner for Blue Veined Cheese at L.A. International Dairy Competition 2018

Made using a recipe in which five ten-gallon cans of cream are added to each vat, The Blue Jay is rich in texture with strong buttery notes. We then crush juniper berries to release their perfume and infuse them throughout to complement the Blue strain’s unique botanical essence. The result is a bold, yet utterly creamy Blue with a delicately piney bouquet that blooms in your mouth. While The Blue Jay is wonderful with any of our suggested pairings, try it melted on a New York Strip for a truly decadent meal.
