Brännvinsost is an aged Swedish cow's milk cheese fortified with an 80 proof Swedish liquor called Brännvin, also known as Aquavit. Made by Wernersson Ost in the style of a Tilsit, this cheese matures for at least 10 months before being injected with hard liquor.

As strong as Brännvinsost may sound, it is surprisingly mild. Under the layer of midnight black wax, there is a sunny yellow cheese, firm with tiny curd holes and a texture reminiscent of aged Cheddar. Upon first taste, the cheese is mellow and buttery. Follow through to the finish for a touch of sharpness from the Aquavit. Only a small quantity of liquor is injected, but it makes a huge difference in the cheese's flavor.

  • Made from cow's milk.
  • Photo depicts whole 26 pound form of cheese.
  • We cut and wrap this item by the 1/2 pound.
  • Please contact us if you would like to purchase the whole form.

Just like in Sweden
This is the real deal, just like the one I always had in Sweden. It is very flavorful and goes well with hard bread, crackers, in fondue, in a salad, on pasta... Or just nibble on it with a pear. My favorite cheese in the world.

swedish cheeses
tried this cheese along with other swedish cheeses and out of the 4 I tried this was my second favorite. I love akvavit and a cheese that has such a great texture. It was buttery and nutty. Slices better then the prast or the vasterbotten.

must have been good
My only complaint is that I did not get to taste the cheese. It was eaten up too quickly at my Thanskgiving party!

Great cheese!
I used this cheese in a quiche - it was fantastic! I couldn't distinguish any alcohol in the flavor, which is probably a bonus.

Desription is accurate
This is, indeed, a creamy, buttery cheese with a sharp finish. I used if to make grilled cheese on rye bread sandwiches to serve with sun dried tomato soup and it was excellent! It is also excellent shaved on a salad paired with apple, pear,(or maybe even fig)! It is a bit crumbly, so it has to be sliced thick, or shaved, but I will be buying more of this unusual and flavorful cheese.
