Shaft’s Gold Mine Blue
Shaft’s Bleu Cheese Company started in 1999 when a abandoned mine was transformed, creating the ideal aging environment for blue cheese. The mine once served as a gateway to the gold-rush era and now serves as the unique setting for the development of the wheels of cheese that are to become Shaft’s Bleu. The blue wheels are first created in Wisconsin under the watchful eye of a Master Cheesemaker. The life of a blue cheese begins, the wheels are then shipped to the California mines for aging. The formula used for making Shaft’s Bleu allows for the cheese to be aged 1 year or longer. And in the cave transform into marbled beauties with piquant, full flavor.
