The first wheel of Flagship, Beecher's signature cheese, was handcrafted in November of 2003. Flagship is a semi-hard cow's milk cheese with a uniquely robust, nutty flavor. It is made with pasteurized milk, carefully aged for 15 months under the watchful eye of the cheesemaker to fully develop its complex flavor and ever-so-slight crumble.

At the first annual American Cheesemaker Awards in California in 2007, Flagship was awarded 'Best Semi-Hard Cow's Milk Cheese', and in 2009 this gourmet cheese was awarded a second place in the Aged Cheddar Category at the American Cheese Society Competition.

We cut and wrap this cheese in blocks of approximately 1 pound and 8 ounces and you can also buy a block of this delicious cheese of 10 pounds.

Please note that wheels may vary slightly in total weight, you will be charged for the actual weight of the wheel that you will receive.


Ingredients:Pasteurized milk, salt, culture, enzymes.
Reviews
Wonderful taste and texture of an aged cheddar. We had it for New Years Eve...and are excited about getting more for our next party. We traveled from Indianapolis. Indiana to Seattle which was fun but, discovering new food there like Beechers flagship cheese has brought us a wonderful memory for later. We brought it home on our flight back with no problems. In fact the TSA agent said we had got the good stuff.

I am not a cheese lover but this flagship cheese is AMAZING!!! It is pricey to go straight to the maker and have it shipped but here at gourmet-food.com it is reasonable.
