Havilah

A complex mountain cheese from close to home.

Quick Overview:

Toasty and sweet with notes of fresh cream; Firm with just a hint of crystalline crunch; A nutty and surprisingly sophisticated Jersey Girl.

Quick Facts

Country of Origin: United States
Milk Type/Treatment: Raw Cow
Rennet Type: Animal

The Flavor Experience

Milky and buttery notes give way to a savory flavor reminiscent of toasted almonds and roasted garlic. A long lasting sweet finish caps off the journey. And all only 40 miles from Philly.

The Story

Cherry Grove Farm conceived of this cheese in the Italian Alpine Style but with age comes a rich and sweet flavor that would be familiar to Gouda lovers. Combine that sweetness with the tyrosine crystallization from the long aging process and you wind up with a unique hybrid of a cheese that's not quite in the Dutch style, no longer quite in the Italian style but all American.

Usage Tips

The wide variety of flavors within Havilah give you a lot of options for pairing. A dry red like Amarone would pair nicely with the savory elements while a Pinot Grigio would bring out Havilah's pineapple notes. Or you could keep it local with a little Flying Fish Abbey Dubbel, some spoonable caramel, and our black lava cashews.
