HOOK’S 3, 5, 7 YEAR (CHEDDAR)
Aged: 3 Years
Hook’s Cheese Company began their cheese production in 1976 making cheddar and swiss. In 1980 they started making other cheese, namely, what turned out to be their award-winning Colby cheese ("Best of Class" award in the World Cheese Championship 1982 and 3rd place at the American Cheese Society Competition 2010). Since that explosive beginning, Hook’s Cheese Company has greatly expanded their line to several varieties of blues, mixed milks, sheep’s milk, flavored cheeses and several others.
