This year’s World Cheese Awards brought a slew of big wins for the iconic cheeses of Vermont Creamery. The 33-year-strong cheesemaker took home seven World Cheese Awards from the London-hosted dairy competition, including one of the coveted Super Gold awards for its Cremont aged cheese.
“It is a tremendous honor to be recognized on the world stage,” said Adeline Druart, the creamery’s President. “These accolades reflect the rigor, diligence, and passion of our cheesemakers and are a testament to the dedication and talent of our entire team.”
Taking home the Super Gold award highlights Cremont as one of the top 66 cheeses in the world, according to a press release, and Vermont Creamery is one of only six American cheesemakers to be awarded the honor in 2017. Named for the, “Cream of Vermont,” Cremont is the company’s take on a double-cream, aged cheese, and is made from a mix of goats’ and cows’ milk.
