Fromagerie Saint-Benoit-du-Lac

Region City
Eastern Townships Saint-Benoît-du-Lac
The monks of the Saint-Benoit-du-Lac abbey have been making cheeses since 1943. With audacity, they were able to create a first blue cheese named “Ermite”. Over time, their know-how has enabled them to develop a dozen cheeses. Made from whole milk, without modified milk ingredients, their method allows them to produce lactose-free cheese. They are also nut-free and gluten-free. Many prizes have been awarded. In 2021, no less than 4 cheeses received an award at various international competitions. In 2019, the Fontina cheese won a "Caseus" prize in Quebec. At the 2016-2017 World Cheese Awards, the smoked blue cheese was awarded a bronze medal. At the 2015 and 2017 British Empire Show, Frère Jacques cheese received second prize. Find them all
