In old world Prussia, Danish immigrants were attempting to produce a cheese from their homeland but a change in cultures and humidity resulted in a more full-flavored cheese they then dubbed after their new home, Tilsit. Our 5 lb. loaf format and Danish ancestry inspired the name BrickHaus. As a washed curd cheese, we use special techniques that keep delicate curds supple until flipping for a final smooth texture. A medium firm cheese and a distant relative of the Havarti family, our BrickHaus Tilsit is rich with buttery and fruity notes and a full flavor and is also a terrific melter.
