Brannvinsost (Swedish Aquavit Cheese)


Please select an option

Br_nnvinsost is an aged Swedish cow's milk cheese fortified with an 80 proof Swedish liquor called Br_nnvin, also known as Aquavit. Made by Wernersson Ost in the style of a Tilsit, this cheese matures for at least 10 months before being injected with hard liquor.

As strong as Br_nnvinsost may sound, it is surprisingly mild. Under the layer of midnight black wax, there is a sunny yellow cheese, firm with tiny curd holes and a texture reminiscent of aged Cheddar. Upon first taste, the cheese is mellow and buttery. Follow through to the finish for a touch of sharpness from the Aquavit. Only a small quantity of liquor is injected, but it makes a huge difference in the cheese's flavor.
