Tillamook Releases Maker’s Reserve Extra Sharp White Cheddar

Last updated on September 13th, 2022 at 02:12 pm

Oregon-based Tillamook County Creamery Association has released its Tillamook Maker’s Reserve 2012 Extra Sharp White Cheddar as the newest 10-year-old vintage in the Maker’s Reserve program.

Each year, TCCA introduces a 10-year and a three-year aged extra sharp white cheddar into their specialty line. These vintages join the lineup of 2016, 2017 and 2018 Tillamook Maker’s Reserve cheeses.

“Our Maker’s Reserve program is the pinnacle of how we do things differently here at TCCA – masterfully and mindfully,” says Jill Allen, director of product excellence. “These special cheeses are selected from only the very best of our already exceptionally made cheddars, aged to perfection and are worth the wait.”

To celebrate Maker’s Reserve’s newest 10-year vintage, TCCA has partnered with Truffle Shuffle, a company who specializes in interactive culinary experiences, to host a live virtual cooking class on April 10. The event will be hosted by Truffle Shuffle’s chefs along with TCCA’s Steve Marko, senior director of research and development.

During the event, Marko will guide attendees through a tasting of Maker’s Reserve cheddars, culminating in a chef-led cook-along of an American Wagyu Cheeseburger featuring the 2012 Maker’s Reserve. Event tickets are on sale now through March 27 here.

In addition to the 2012 vintage, TCCA also welcomes a new three-year aged cheddar into the mix. Maker’s Reserve 2019 Extra Sharp White Cheddar has a brown butter and caramel aroma, dense and creamy textures, and is full of flavors of sweet cream and custard.

Founded in 1909 as a farmer-owned cooperative, Tillamook County Creamery Association recently achieved the distinction as a Certified B Corporation. TCCA produces internationally recognized, award-winning cheese as well as ice cream, butter, cream cheese spreads, yogurt and sour cream.

TCCA is owned by almost 80 farming families and operates production facilities in Tillamook and Boardman, Oregon, employing more than 900 people throughout the state. The Tillamook Creamery is the largest tourist attraction on the coast of Oregon and one of the most popular in the state, attracting more than one million visitors each year.
