As you probably already know, the honour winning 5-year cheddar is the one that we managed to save from the fire that completely destroyed our plant on February 3, 2013. It was part of the inventory that we were able to recuperate thanks to the firewall in our warehouse.
But then, in the last two years, we have seen our stocks melt like snow in the sun and we are almost at the end of this small reserve. That’s why, as of today, the 5-year cheddar will no longer be available anywhere but at the St-Albert Coop Boutique and even this stock will be exhausted shortly after the holidays.
Why? The rebuilding period has created a two-year break in the production of our cheddar. St-Albert 5-year cheddar is aged…5 years! The good news is that production has been restarted since our re-opening two years ago and new stocks are being created. St-Albert has always been committed to offering only the best and pure to its customers; consequently, we will have to wait another 3 years before being able to savour the next piece of award-winning cheddar.
We thank you for your patience and hope that you will be as excited as we are that it will be back on the shelves.
In the meantime, we wish you happy holidays and hope that you will take advantage of them by coming to the Coop to get some of our last bricks of 5-year cheddar.
