Miranda

Originally from the Netherlands, Jos Vulto began making and aging cheese in his Brooklyn apartment. An artist by trade, he never set out to become a cheesemaker but after half a year of experimenting and favorable reception of some of his creations, he started to explore the possibility of starting his own creamery. Vulto and his late wife owned a seasonal getaway in Walton, a small town in the western Catskills of New York that ended up being the perfect location for his new venture.

Named after Vulto's late wife, Miranda is a small rosy button of cheese, washed in a locally-produced absinthe called Meadow of Love. An easy entry point into the world of washed-rind cheeses, it offers a mild aroma, and a smooth and silky paste that is both savory and sweet with notes of cultured butter and wet hay.
