Hand made by Benedictine monks from the Abbaye de Saint-Benoît-du-Lac in Quebec. The Abbaye's skilled cheese makers have been crafting blue cheese since 1943, starting with blue ERMITE. Today, more than a dozen varieties of cheese are made at the Abbaye.
This semi-soft blue-veined cheese is made from pasteurized milk and aged for 6 months in the Abbaye de Saint-Benoît-du-Lac’s ripening rooms. A sweet mild blue with a delicate smokey flavour. The smoking process gives the cheese a slightly woody taste that pairs well with the acidity of the blue veining.
