Title: 100 g


A Canadian blue-veined, semi-soft, uncooked pressed cheese made from pasteurized cow's milk. Produced in 1943, Ermite is Quebec’s first blue cheese. Its name is French for hermit (monk) which describes the spiritual life led by its cheesemakers - the Benedictine monks at the Abbaye de Saint-Benoît-du-Lac. It is has a moist and thin greyish rind and creamy coloured paste with even distribution of deep blue veins. The cheese is crumbly, and becomes creamy as it ripens over time.

Flavours are of mushroom, fermentation and cellar. It leaves a salty, sharp mouthfeel with notes of nuts, mushrooms and fruit pits. Its distinctive taste is best enjoyed with port or red wine, added to dips / creamy salad dressings, melted on a hamburger or stuffed in whole dates. This cheese is unequalled!

Product of Saint-Benoît du Lac, Quebec.
