1608 de Charlevoix

Ingredients: Unpasteurized milk, Bacterial culture, Salt, Rennet.

Artisanal cheese, Le 1608 has a slightly moist pink rind and a dark yellow paste that is smooth, creamy and melting in the mouth. It gives off sweet smells of butter and nuts. To the taste, it is soft and complex, revealing flavors of butter, green apple and a nutty finish.

The 1608 was launched in 2008 in honor of Quebec City's 400th anniversary. This cheese is made from 100% Canadian cow's milk, a breed of small black cow that was established in Quebec at the beginning of the colony of New France in the 17th century. Relocated to Charlevoix in 2007, the Canadian cows of Ferme Hengil produce the milk used to make 1608.

Our cheese case is small and meticulously cared for. We don’t try to carry everything, but instead we scour the field for tasty and interesting cheeses that satisfy the imagination as much as they satisfy the palate. We keep an ever rotating selection of about 45 cheeses in stock so there is always something new to try, but you can count on finding your favourites too--and every one of them is delicious!
