Cowgirl Creamery Red Hawk Cheese

Red Hawk is a washed-rind, triple-cream cheese made with pasteurized cow's milk. During four weeks of aging the cheese is washed with a brine solution that develops red-orange rind that gives the cheese its name. This complex cheese is rich in taste with hints of chalk and hay.

Red Hawk Cheese from Cowgirl Creamery is a triple-cream, washed-rind, fully-flavored cheese made from organic cow's milk. This small cheese is aged for 6 weeks and washed with a brine solution that promotes the growth of a bacteria that tints the rind a sunset red-orange.

Red Hawk is named after a raptor that circles the skies in northern Marin County where this gourmet cheese is made and it has a presence, like all washed rind cheeses. If you like Epoisses, you will most likely like this Californian cheese.

Red Hawk won a 2nd Place Ribbon in 2007 in the Washed Rind Cheeses Category and a second place in all categories in 2009 and 2012 at the American Cheese Society Competition.
