Cheesemakers take home five medals

Cows Creamery in Charlottetown was recognized for their flavorsome cheeses at the Canadian Cheese Awards in Montreal recently.

The Island company took home five awards including cheese of the year for their Avonlea Clothbound Cheddar.

This cheddar is made with milk from dairy farms across the province. The wheels of cheddar are wrapped in cheesecloth for 12-18 months and are aged by Armand Bernard in a cheese cave where the temperature and humidity are monitored.

“We have a great team in place working to create all of our products,” Andrea White, wholesale manager for Cows Creamery, said in a press release. “We also have incredible customers across the country, and around the world who have been with us from the beginning.”

Cows Creamery also took home awards for best aged cheddar for the Avonlea Clothbound and best smoked cheese, Best Cow’s Milk Cheese and best Atlantic Canada cheese for the Appletree Smoked Cheddar.

The Canadian Cheese Awards showcases Canadian cheese made without artificial colours, flavours, preservatives or modified milk ingredients. The prestigious event takes place every two years and this year 301 cheeses were submitted with 78 of those becoming finalist.

This is not the first time Cows Creamery was recognized for their Avonlea Clothbound Cheddar. Last year, the cheddar was acknowledged as World’s Best Vintage Cheddar and was one of the top 16 cheeses at the World Cheese Awards in the United Kingdom.
