1608 de Charlevoix


Semi firm




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

Artisanal cheese, The 1608 has a slightly moist pink rind and a smooth, creamy dark yellow paste that melts 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.
