Made from pasteurized cow milk.

An absolutely awesome Blue Cheese and a staff favorite. The freshest raw milk from Jersey cows makes Roth Käse’s Bleu Affinée decidedly rich and creamy. Bleu Affinée is a step above their normal Buttermilk Blue, as it is cured for at least six months, creating a deliciously piquant and earthy flavor profile. If you enjoy the regular version of Buttermilk Blue, you have to try this connoisseur’s selection!

Include Bleu Affinée in a “flight” of blue cheeses, or serve with dried fruits (try dates and figs) and nuts (try candied walnuts or pecans).

Suggested pairing: Cabernet Sauvignon or Port wine, or even Grand Marnier.



Buttermilk Blue Affinée cheese

Roth Cheese has a rich history of cheesemaking, starting in 1863 when twenty-year-old Oswald Roth from Niederbipp, Switzerland, started O. Roth & Cie., which specialized in the production and exportation of Emmentaler. Over the years, his business expanded by exporting throughout Europe, South America, and the United States. In 1911, Oswald’s son, Otto, immigrated to New York City and founded a subsidiary of his father’s cheese company, Otto Roth & Company. By the mid-1970s, the business had become the largest specialty cheese importer & distributor in the United States and was eventually sold to General Foods in 1983. In 1990, cousins Felix Roth and Fermo Jaeckle began scouting for locations to bring the Swiss business to the States, eventually settling on Monroe, WI due to the area’s Swiss heritage and cheesemaking tradition. With their background in Swiss cheesemaking, the newly founded Roth Käse USA naturally focused on Swiss-inspired cheeses.

Merging with Emmi AG in 2010 to make Emmi Roth USA, they continue to make waves in the cheese world with world-class offerings, and they have a bevy of awards to prove it. One of those cheeses that have won numerous awards is Buttermilk Blue®, which is in your shipment today. Buttermilk Blue is made in small batches using only the freshest and highest quality milk which, as with all of Roth’s cheeses, is 100% rBST-free and produced by local dairy farmers. The result has been numerous awards including Best In Class at the World Cheese Championships in 2014, 2nd Place at the U.S. Championship Cheese Contest in 2017, and a Bronze at the World Cheese Awards in 2016, just to name a few.
