Mackenzie Creamery tied themselves for 3rd Place at the 2011 American Cheese Society Cheese Competition held in Montreal, Canada on August 3rd – 7th. Our cheeses, Cognac Fig and Apricot Ginger, tied in the “Fresh Goat Milk Cheeses – Flavor Added” category.
We introduced Cognac Fig in the fall of 2010, and it went on to immediately win 1st Place at the American Dairy Goat Cheese Competition that October. Our Cognac Fig syrup is made with Courvoisier Cognac and Dalmatia Figs.
The Apricot Ginger was introduced this spring of 2011. This pleasing flavor was created by Jean’s daughter-in-law, Erica, and has been one of our most popular flavors since!
