Shakerag BlueSequatchie Cove Creamery
About this item
Shakerag Blue's colorful name is derived from the beautiful Shakerag Hollow atop the Cumberland Plateau, famous for its wildflower trails and rich moonshining past. Legend goes that a thirsty individual could leave a white rag and money in a tree stump and find a jar of moonshine in its place upon returning. An ode to all things Southern, Shakerag is a crumbly yet dense blue-veined cheese cloaked in local fig leaves which have been soaked in Chatanooga Whiskey, the first legal whiskey being distilled in the city since Prohibition. Its salty-sweet and fruity interior is reminiscent of root beer, and lends itself to more complex notes of savory bacon, dark chocolate, and tropical flavors towards the rind.
