Snowdonia Amber Mist

Amber mist WEB Snowdonia’s Amber Mist is the Cheese of the Month for January. Snowdonia is a new line of cheese we will be carrying here at the co-op, and Amber Mist is definitely one of its most delicious offerings. It is a mature cheddar with a generous splash of whisky and comes in a cute 200 gram wheel called a truckle. The smoky peat tones of the whisky combine perfectly with the flavor of the cheddar for a wonderful adult pairing. It even won the Royal Welsh Show bronze medal. This cheese is definitely worth trying and sharing with a friend.

Snowdonia Cheese Company was established in 2001 in North Wales. Their aim was to start a luxury line of cheeses using only the best milk and ingredients that Wales has to offer. They began selling their cheeses at farmer’s markets across the United Kingdom, but they quickly became popular and were made available at upscale retail shops. Now Snowdonia sells their award winning truckles all over the world.

Amber Mist is delicious all on its own, but you could also pair it with a glass of whisky if you want to enhance the whisky flavor of the cheese itself. It pairs very well with an assortment of chutneys and crackers or is even great to use in a recipe. You can find recipes for Amber Mist on Snowdonia’s website. Go ahead and try a truckle of Amber Mist while it’s on sale this month and keep an eye out for other flavors from Snowdonia that will be hitting the shelves soon!
