Jasper Hill's Cabot Clothbound Cheddar

Notes From The Producer

IN 2003, Cabot Creamery asked the Cellars of Jasper HIll to age a special batch of cheddar, sparking a revolutionary collaboration. Clothbound's milk is sourced exclusively from George Kempton's farm in Peacham, Vermont. After it comes to the Jasper Hill where they coat the young cheese in lard and add an additional layer of cloth. The cheeses age for 10-15 months in their Cellars, where they are constantly brushed, turned, and monitored for quality.

SENSORY NOTES  - Clothbound is an approachable but complex natural-rind, bandaged cheddar with a crumbly texture and nutty aroma. The flavor is deeply savory and slightly tangy with caramel sweetness to the finish.

PAIRING AND SERVICE  - Clothbound has a signature tang and caramel nuttiness with a rustic crystalline texture that becomes creamy on the palate. This savory-sweet balance of flavor makes a perfect match for charcuterie, apple jelly, or a rich chestnut honey. Pair with an off-dry sparkling apple cider, hoppy ale, or an oaked Cabernet Sauvignon. Clothbound is an award winning cheese, including American Cheese Society's 2006 Best in Show.
