Beehive Cheese Collection

Cheese lovers are abuzz about the artisanal creations of Beehive Cheese Company. This sampler includes their Barely Buzzed and Teahive cow's milk cheeses, a package of their signature whole-grain Beehive Rusks and a jar of Slide Ridge Private Reserve High-Altitude Honey. Teahive: Smooth and creamy, with a rich aroma of orange blossoms, this cheese is rubbed with black tea and bergamot before aging for 5 to 8 months. The result is a dark, edible rind and a rich, full-bodied cheese that pairs well with fruitier wines and beers; 8 oz. Barely Buzzed: Aged for 7 months, this award-winning cheese shares the same name as the espresso coffee roasted by the cheesemaker's brother in Colorado. The espresso, roasted in small batches, is combined with lavender and hand rubbed into the cheese's rind to give a nutty, exotic flavor to the buttery semi-hard cheese; 8 oz. Beehive Rusks: Triangular whole-grain crackers made with dried cherries, honey, seeds and nuts. Slide Ridge Private Reserve High-Altitude Honey: This thick, light honey owes its delicious character to bees foraging on wildflowers; 5 oz. Approx. 1 lb. cheese total. Shipped fresh and chilled from Beehive Cheese Company. Product of USA. A Williams-Sonoma exclusive. Artisan cheeses showcase fresh, pasteurized Jersey cow's milk from a single herd and other ingredients from Utah's unique terrain. Selection includes two wedges of cheese, a 4-oz. package of Beehive Rusks and a 5 oz. jar of Slide Ridge Private Reserve High-Altitude Honey.

Fantastic cheese - okay meat
June 25, 2016
The cheese was some of the best we've had. The rub was compliments the cheese, but I think it was fantastic all on it's own. The meat selection was difficult to get unwrapped and not as good as I'd expect. Loved the crackers and jelly.
Pros: Quality, Good for Entertaining, Flavor
Cons: Difficult to Prepare

Espresso rub for the rind. What a great idea! Goes well with this tasty cheese. Let it get to room temp before trying, it will be very good!
Pros: Good for Entertaining, Great Gift

Really Interesting Flavors
May 21, 2012
We tried this cheese a few months ago despite trepidation that the rubs would overpower the cheese. Not so! They just added an interesting little something. For my part, though, I would trade the honey and the crackers for slightly more of the exquisite cheese. But I can see how this would make a lovely gift. I would buy this again for us or for a gift.
Pros: Quality, Flavor, Great Gift
