Gold Hill Cheese by Haystack Mountain
Rescued (due to oversupply) • No Preservatives
Gold Hill was created by Haystack Mountain cheesemaker, Jackie Chang, and named for one of the original gold strikes in north-central Colorado. It is a Spanish/Portuguese style cheese made with pasteurized goat milk and additional cultures to bring out a balanced buttery and tangy aroma. This firm natural rind is aged for six to twelve months, which allows it to develop its nutty, earthy notes. Haystack Mountain cheeses are handmade in Boulder, Colorado and free of additives or preservatives. They use the highest quality ingredients and traditional cheesemaking techniques, to create cheeses free of preservatives and artificial flavors.
Gold Hill not only took home a Super Gold at the 2017-18 World Cheese Awards in London, England but also won the award for the Best American Cheese. As versatile in the kitchen as it on the table, you’ll find Gold Hill a delicious domestic stand-in for Spanish and Italian imports.
