A special cheese inspired by the Holiday season, Yule Käse is a unique version of Beecher's Flagship Reserve cheese. To make Yule Käse, the cheese is first clothbound and open-air aged for 13 months. The truckle is then further aged in red wine and blackberry honey. The resulting cheese has Reserve’s flavors of nut and caramel, but with floral tones of honey and red berries. Feature Yule Käse on a holiday cheese plate, serve on a crostini with spicy coppa and sliced grapes.
A cheese lover since childhood, Kurt Beecher Dammeier remembers encouraging his mother to buy premium cheese at a time when processed cheese was overtaking the market. He also recalls his great-grandfather, whose first name was Beecher, purchasing Stilton by the wheel. In his college years at Washington State University (which is well known for its agricultural programs), Kurt was able to learn about the process of making fine cheese. Then, in 2002, with a track record as a successful businessman and entrepreneur, he decided to combine his love of great cheese and passion for pure food, with inspiration and business savvy. He decided to become the only artisanal cheese producer in Seattle. The idea for Beecher's Handmade Cheese was born.
