Cremont (a play on the words cream and Vermont) is a mixed milk cheese that combines fresh Vermont goat's milk and Vermont cream. It's hand-crafted at Vermont Creamery and has an incredible decadent texture; it's almost silky. Cremont has a beautiful wrinkly rind, which encases the rich paste. Its flavor has hints of hay, hazelnut, and mushrooms, with a slight tang that is balanced by a milky sweetness. Cremont is an award-winning cheese, winning gold, at the 2011 World Cheese awards, and 1st place at the 2011 U.S. Championship Cheese awards.
