Description automatically generatedFitchburg, Wis. [Oct. 2, 2023] – Finding the perfect holiday gifts can make a hectic time of year even more challenging. Instead of another gift card, tie or knick-knack, consider an edible gift everyone is sure to love – award-winning Wisconsin cheese. 

This year, Roth® Cheese is partnering with Fromagination, a renowned artisan cheese shop in the heart of Wisconsin, to bring consumers a new holiday gift set, featuring an exclusive collection of award-winning Roth cheese and accompaniments.  

“We’re proud to partner with Fromagination to offer a gift box that is sure to wow the person who has everything and cheese lovers across the country,” said Abby Despins, Director of Communications for Roth Cheese. “The box includes everything you need to create a cheeseboard, including our World Champion Grand Cru Surchoix cheese. With this, gift givers are able to offer a unique and memorable gift box to cheese lovers on their lists.” 

The Roth® for the Holidays box is available for order and shipping across the U.S. 

Here’s a look at what’s in the box: 

Grand Cru Surchoix: This World Champion cheese is handmade in traditional copper vats and aged in our cellars under the careful watch of our cellarmasters. This washed-rind Alpine-style cheese is aged a minimum of 9 months to create a firm texture and complex flavors of caramel, fruit, and mushroom. It was named the 2016 World Champion, marking the first time an American-made cheese won the cheese competition in nearly three decades. No domestically produced cheese has achieved such honors since. 

Canela: Experts at producing award-winning American Original cheeses, our cheesemakers continue to craft the beautiful and unique, limited production Canela. Named after the Spanish word for “Cinnamon” this Spanish-inspired American Original is made with fresh, Wisconsin Cow’s milk then hand-rubbed with a cinnamon and paprika blend for its signature reddish-orange rind and sweet flavor. Formerly GranQueso, this one-of-a-kind cheese has been an American Cheese Society winner several times. 

3 Chile Pepper Gouda: A colorful trio of chipotle, habanero and jalapeño peppers add a heated twist to our award-winning Gouda. It boasts more smoke than spice, which is balanced by a soft, buttery texture for depth. 

Dill Havarti: This classic, creamy, and well-balanced Havarti adds dill for a subtle and savory finish. 

The cheeses are paired with Potter’s Wisconsin Rye Crackers; Fortune Favors’ Classic (candied) Pecans; and Quince & Apple’s Pear with Ginger and Honey preserves and Tart Cherry and White Tea Preserves.
