Pairings and Complementary Flavors
Cocktails: Old Fashioned, Manhattan, or Whiskey Sour. The tart, smooth flavors of whiskey and bright notes in these cocktails can contrast the cheese’s richness.

Wine: Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Zinfandel, or Port. The smoky and fruity makeup of these wines
will harmonize nicely and provide an alluring contrast to the sharpness of the Cheddar, while the
tannins in these wines will help cut through the richness of the cheese.

Beer: IPA (pale, brown, or amber ale), stout, or porter all pair wonderfully with Renard’s Artisan
Cheese 1-Year Aged Cheddar. The maltiness of these beers creates a wonderful backdrop to the
cheese’s tanginess, creating an enticing balance of flavors.

Accompaniments: Sweet fruits such as strawberries, Granny Smith apples, red grapes, fig preserves,
or honey add a natural sweetness that will balance out the sharpness of this cheese. Cured meats or
pickles add depth, highlighting a tangy and savory taste.

Nuts: Candied or smoked nuts. Candied nuts add a smooth and subtle, yet sweet, flavor to create a
delectable combination of sweet and savory when paired with this cheese. Smoked nuts will accentuate
our 1-Year Cheddar’s aged characteristics to create an even more satisfying savory flavor. The unique
combination of textures will keep your palate intrigued.
