description

The cheese dairy of Île-aux-Grues was inspired by the rich history of Grosse Île, one of the 21 islands that make up the Île-aux-Grues archipelago. It is a national historic site that commemorates the importance of Canadian immigration between the beginning of the 19th century and the First World War. The cheese is made from the milk of Swiss Brown cows raised on hay from the island’s tideland. This un-pasteurized cheese has a perfect, uniform, semi-soft paste strewn with “eyes”. Its woodsy aroma and slightly acidic but fruity flavour will enchant your taste buds.
