 The concept for the range of Deer Creek cheeses was developed by Chris Gentine of Artisan Cheese Exchange in Wisconsin.

Artisan Cheese Exchange is a company that primarily focuses on the export of American cheeses overseas.  In a move designed to differentiate their cheddars within the international marketplace, Chris used his training as a Wisconsin Master Cheese Grader to carefully select various batches of cheese deemed suitable for further aging, and used Wisconsin grading standards as a certification of the cheeses’ quality. Maturation and affinage of the cheeses is done in conjunction with Wisconsin Aging and Grading.

Deer Creek 7 Year Proprietor’s Grand Reserve is produced by Land O’ Lakes in the Niagra Cuesta region of Eastern Wisconsin. This cheese, which has aged for a full 7 years, is carefully selected for its quality by cheese grading experts. It is selected for its balance of distinctive bold flavors, which give way to a rich, lingering finish, and its balance of a firm and smooth texture that does not become dry and crumbly. 

Pairings

Pair it with a Cabernet Sauvignon, a Scotch Ale or a French Cider.
