Infused with Basil Hayden's Bourbon
We’ve partnered with our good friends at Basil Hayden's to bring you this artfully aged cheddar that’s infused with their Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. It’s sweet and creamy with a hint of bourbon spice.
We love pioneers and explorers. That’s what makes our partnership with Basil Hayden's so exciting.
Basil Hayden Sr. began distilling his Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey in 1796 using his own mash based on what he had on hand. Unconstrained by the rules of traditional bourbon, he discovered what we now call “high-rye”.
At Beehive Cheese, we can relate to breaking rules and going our own direction. Since our founding, we continue to produce unique and complex cheeses that are leaders in their category of American cheeses.
What does it taste like?
Pour Me A Slice is sweet and creamy. As you near the rind, the spiciness of the bourbon becomes more pronounced. This beauty will be enjoyed by bourbon and cheese enthusiasts alike.

Trying to decide between the 4 oz or 12 oz?
The 4-oz cut is great for an intimate gathering. You can share this cut with four other people or hide it in your fridge and nibble away in secrecy. We won’t tell on you.
The 12-oz cut is our work horse. This one is for the for the entertainer or used in cooking. It’s enough cheese for a couple grilled cheese sammies or a party of 12-16 guests.
