Next up we want to give a boisterous congratulations to the folks at Death's Door Spirits for their award for best new spirits in the October issue of Wine & Spirits. A smooth gin filled with aromas andflavors of juniper berries and spices this is a local favorite made right here in the Midwest in Wisconsin.
Finally we would like to give a big huge resounding round of applause to all of our cheesy friends who won at the Guild of Fine Foods World Cheese Awards. While we are happy for all of our international friends (including British Cheddars, Idiazabal and Tallegio) , American cheeses also did a great job of bringing home the gold, silver and bronze, showing that when it comes to cheese we are strong competitors.
To name a few: Cypress Grove Chevre (CA), Carr Valley Cheese (WI), Vermont Butter & Cheese Co. (VT), The Cellars at Jasper Hill (VT). Haystack Mountain (CO), Marin French Cheese (CA), Seymour Dairy Products (WI), Grafton Village Cheese Co. (VT), Hollands Family Cheese (WI), Uplands Cheese Co. (WI), Satori Foods (WI), and many others. Thank you all for making wonderful cheeses and congratulations on your wins!
