Deer Creek’s, The Blue Jay, is a blue cheese lover’s delight! Made using a recipe in which five ten-gallon cans of cream are added to each vat, The Blue Jay is rich in texture with strong buttery notes. Crushed juniper berries are then added to release their perfume and infuse them throughout to complement the Blue strain’s unique botanical essence. The result is a bold, yet utterly creamy Blue with a delicately piney bouquet that blooms in your mouth. While The Blue Jay is wonderful with any of our suggested pairings, try it melted on a New York Strip for a truly decadent meal.
