Le Calumet® (now the Classique Smoked) and Le Louis Cyr® stand out at World Cheese Awards
Le Calumet® (now the Classique Smoked)and Le Louis Cyr® put in a spectacular performance at the 2019 World Cheese Awards by winning bronze and silver medals respectively in their individual categories. Cold smoked using natural wood, Le Calumet® (now the Classique Smoked) stood out among the very best smoked cheeses in the world. Its well-balanced, woody taste that does not mask its underlying cheese flavour was especially well-regarded. Le Louis Cyr®, winner of multiple national awards in Canada, has finally been recognized on the international stage. The quality of milk used in making it, which comes exclusively from dry hay fed cows, lends the cheese a delicious caramelly, roasted flavour uniquely its own. Le Louis Cyr®, which takes its name from the man once considered the strongest man in the world, has now had its turn to earn accolades internationally.
