Vermont Creamery was again recognized for excellence with seven World Cheese Awards, including a Super Gold for Cremont at the annual competition hosted by the Guild of Fine Food in London on Saturday, November 11.
“It is a tremendous honor to be recognized on the world stage,” said Adeline Druart, President of Vermont Creamery. “These accolades reflect the rigor, diligence and passion of our cheesemakers and are a testament to the dedication and talent of our entire team.”
A Super Gold win for Cremont ranks among the top 66 cheeses in the world. Named for the, “Cream of Vermont,” Cremont is a double-cream, aged cheese made from a mix of goats’ and cows’ milk.
Vermont Creamery is one of only six American cheesemakers to win Super Gold in 2017. This year, Coupole also won gold, Bijou took silver, Bonne Bouche, Crème Fraîche, fresh herb goat cheese and vanilla crème fraîche all took bronze awards.
Vermont Creamery has won fourteen World Cheese Awards since 2011. This is the third World Cheese Award for both Bijou and Coupole and the third for Cremont. This is the second World Cheese Award for both Vanilla Crème Fraiche and Bonne Bouche.
Now in its 30th year, the World Cheese Awards is the largest international cheese competition in the world. This year, 250 judges from 29 different nations, assessed over 3,000 cheeses from 35 countries.
Sixty-six separate teams awarded bronze, silver and gold awards to cheeses in a variety of styles before each choosing a Super Gold to put before the Super Jury judging panel. The panel – which featured experts from the UK, Japan, South Africa, Mexico, France, Italy and Sweden – then narrowed the selection down to just 16. Each of these were tasted and scored in front of a live audience and broadcast across the world.
