Shakerag Blue's colorful name is derived from both the beautiful Shakerag Hollow known for its wildflowers and rich moonshining past, as well as an old Prohibition era method of either alerting moonshiners to approaching revenue agents, or as a way to procure some white lightening of one's own. An ode to all things Southern, Shakerag is a crumbly yet dense blue-veined cheese cloaked in local fig leaves which have been soaked in Chattanooga Whiskey, the first legal whiskey being distilled in the city since Prohibition. Its salty-sweet and fruity interior is reminiscent of root beer, and lends itself to more complex notes of savory bacon, dark chocolate, and tropical flavors towards the rind.

To maintain quality, our cheese inventory is constantly refreshing. We cannot guarantee that a cheese is in stock at a quantity sufficient to fill on order.  Orders for out of stock or limited quantities will be notified, substitutions recommended and purchases partially or wholly refunded if necessary.  

1-2 day shipping is required at checkout.  Cheese is shipped on Monday - Wednesday in insulated packaging with cold packs.  Cheese should be refrigerated immediately after receipt.  

All our orders are sliced by hand. Slicing cheese is an inexact art.  Weights are approximate and will vary.
