The iconic Rush Creek Reserve is a very limited-release cheese from cheesemaker Andy Hatch at Uplands Cheese Company in Dodgeville, Wisconsin. This satiny, unpasteurized, soft cheese is created in the style of the Swiss classic, Vacherin Mont d’Or. It is spoonable, spreadable, and has notes of smoke, earth, and fresh cream. Made with the rich evening milk as the cows’ diet begins to change from summer pasture to the winter’s dry hay, making Rush Creek Reserve exclusively available in the late autumn.
