CHAUMES CHEESE

Chaumes is a round, soft-ripened cheese with a bright orange washed rind and an ivory paste. The rind appears after several washings of the crust, along with brushing with some ferments. Chaumes is distinguished by soft, springy texture a rich, creamy paste and a hazelnut aftertaste. An excellent table cheese, it also melts well for a nice addition to any recipe. Serve Chaumes on a cheese platter with Camembert and Blue Stilton or with Brie and Roquefort. Ale, sparkling apple cider and dry whites are good pairings for Chaumes.

Kilchurn Estate® Krystal Pure Cave Aged Cheddar

Kilchurn Estate® Krystal Pure Cave Aged Cheddar is made using pasteurized cow's milk and the same culture that is used to make Parmigiano Reggiano. This culture produces calcium crystals in the cheese. Krystal Cheddar is cave aged for 15 months, making it one of our sharpest cheddars with an earthy, cave aged taste. This cheddar has a creamy mouthfeel and the calcium crystallization throughout the paste makes it a truly unique cheese.

L'AFFINÉ de SAINT ALBRAY

Made with pasteurized cow's milk, this popular cheese is ripened for two weeks and formed into a shape similar to that of a flower with each "petal" forming a half pound of cheese. The six "petals" are centered around a disk which, when removed, creates a hollow center resembling the center of the flower. Only St. Albray offers a flavor experience as unique as its scalloped silhouette. When the whole wheel, or flower, is displayed, the cheese makes an attractive centerpiece to a table.

PROFILE:

Saint Albray slices beautifully and is mild and moist, but still retains its body despite its creamy nature. Saint Albray's enduring success comes from its distinctive taste. As a young soft ripened cheese, St. Albray resembles a rich and mellow Camembert, but with a less intense flavor. Within its mysterious aging process, St. Albray develops the hearty, robust flavor of a traditional washed-rind cheese. St. Albray has a rich aroma and a rich flavor that can be enhanced by eating it with its ginger/reddish-white rind. Its ivory center contrasts well with its colorful rind. Serve Saint Albray with a Pinot Noir or Chianti. It also goes well with white or nut breads.

HISTORY:

The year 1976 may have marked the Bicentennial in the United States, but in France it was the year Saint Albray cheese was invented. Beyond the snow-capped Pyrenees lie the serene pastures of Basque country and the Bearn region of southwest France. Spicy cuisine, Jurancon wine and hearty succulent cheeses flourish. Within this rich culinary heritage, St. Albray was conceived and, like Brie and Camembert, it was born of the purest tradition in French cheese.

Yippee Ki-Yay: A Blend of Straight Rye Whiskeys

Yippee Ki-Yay, High West Distillery (Park City, Utah)

One day, just for fun, we put some rye whiskey into barrels originally used to age wine. When we mixed the ‘vermouth-ed’ and the ‘syrah-ed’ we discovered an all-natural, not disgustingly sweet whiskey for the rest of us.

How to Enjoy

Yippee Ki-Yay shows best at room temp, neat. With a little time in the glass sitting idle (just a few minutes) the bouquet really opens up to its full potential.

The Name

Where did “Yippee Ki-Yay” come from? Is it a real expression of joy popular with cowboys in the 19th century Western United States? Is it part of the greatest one liner in movie history? Was it influenced by the phrase ‘Yippie-yi-yo-ki-yay’ from the 1936 hit song “I’m an Old Cow Hand from the Rio Grande” about a 20th-century cowboy who has little in common with cowpunchers of old and sung by Bing Crosby in the film “Rhythm on the Range” (also sung later by Roy Rogers and Frank Sinatra) and considered one of the Top 100 Western songs of all time? We’re not sure. But we are sure we like how we feel when we say it... and recommend you use it every chance you get.

Back Label Story

We confess...we didn’t coin the term “Yippee Ki-Yay”. Moreover, we didn’t paint the picture on the front label. It’s an historic poster (Gift of The Coe Foundation and Henry B. Balink) now at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West in Cody, Wyoming (centerofthewest.org, you really ought to visit). Furthermore, we didn’t distill the whiskeys in this bottle - it’s our Double Rye! However, we did come up with a combination that we think will make you say...Yippee Ki-Yay drinkers of horrible tasting cheap flavored uisge beatha! One day, just for fun, we put Double Rye! into oak barrels that had originally been used to age two different types of wine and discovered an all-natural, not disgustingly-sweet sipper for the rest of us.

*Label designed by High West Distillery's very own Shelby Caret.
