Whitney is a Jasper Hill Creamery original, inspired by the classic, mid-elevation mountain cheeses of Europe. This raw milk cheese is made from Jasper Hill Farm’s own grass-fed cows. During cheesemaking, lactose-rich whey is rinsed from the curds in the vat, which slows acidification and creates a smooth, semi-firm, meltable texture. While wheels ripen in The Cellars, they are washed with a mixture of morge—a naturally cultured brine—and spent yeast from the tanks of La Garagista, a terroir-driven natural winery in Vermont. This treatment brings a floral funk to the rich but mellow paste. The tasting notes range from light floral and fruit tones with savory, toasted nut and baked cheese flavors. While infinitely snackable, Whitney is also a great melter and fabulous served as a Raclette.
