The Stag

Bold & Nutty Specialty Cheddar

International Cheese Awards 2017 Gold Medal Winner & Four Time American Cheese Society 1st Place Winner

Select vats of The Fawn are chosen for further aging to allow for the development of the intense, bold flavor characteristics of The Stag. It is rugged, driving strong toffee and butterscotch notes, yet possesses the sweet finish of The Fawn. As it ages, The Stag develops a hint of crystalline crunch to further enliven the taste buds with rich texture as well as flavor. The Stag, a true Wisconsin Original, is a traditional bandage-wrapped 22 lb. daisy wheel Cheddar. Chosen as one of the “101 Best Cheeses of the Year” by Culture Magazine.
