Artfully aged cheddar that’s infused with Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey.
Pour Me A Slice is sweet and creamy with a hint of bourbon spice. Basil Hayden Sr. began distilling his Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey in 1796 using his own mash based on what he had on hand. Unconstrained by the rules of traditional bourbon, he discovered what we now call “high-rye” used in this cheese. As you near the rind, the spiciness of the bourbon becomes more pronounced. This beauty will be enjoyed by bourbon and cheese enthusiasts alike.
Beehive produces award-winning cheeses like honey, salt-rubbed Seahive, or Red Butte Hatch Chile. Owners Pat and Tim had no cheesemaking experience when they started Beehive. After learning how to make their base cheese, Promontory, the partners realized pretty quickly that you can’t make great cheese without the best milk. They chose to partner with Wadeland South, a fourth-generation family creamery. The Wade family cares for a healthy and thriving herd of Holstein and Jersey cows. The high butter fat of their milk gives Beehive Cheeses a consistent, rich quality.
