Description

Originally made with milk from a single herd of brown Swiss cows from Grosse-Île, fed in part on batture hay, this semi-soft cheese with a mixed and brushed rind reveals a beautiful uniform paste dotted with small openings. Nowadays, Tomme de Grosse-Île is made exclusively from unpasteurized milk from Grosse-Île producers. On the palate, we discover aromas of wild mushrooms with a slightly tangy taste that tends towards fruitiness. Product of Quebec.

Fun Fact: Grosse-Île is a few oars away from Isle-aux-Grues. With other places nearby, they make up the Isle-aux-Grues archipelago. In the heart of the St. Lawrence, Grosse-Île was chosen as a gateway and quarantine station for thousands of European immigrants. From 1832 to 1937, a number of Irish immigrants set foot on Grosse-Île. Created in 2004, the Tomme de Grosse-Île pays tribute to the courage of these immigrants who shaped Quebec and Canada. A pastille on the label shows the Irish Memorial overlooking Grosse-Île.
