Fromagerie Saint-Benoit-du-Lac

The monks of the Saint-Benoit-du-Lac abbey have been making cheeses since 1943. With audacity, they were able to create a first blue cheese named “Ermite”. Over time, their know-how has enabled them to develop a dozen cheeses: Swiss or Gouda, blue, grain or smoked, and made from whole milk, without modified milk ingredients. Their method allows them to produce lactose-free cheese. Many prizes have been awarded. In 2019, the Fontina cheese won a "Caseus" prize in Quebec. At the 2016-2017 World Cheese Awards, the smoked blue cheese was awarded a bronze medal. At the 2015 and 2017 British Empire Show, Frère Jacques cheese received second prize. Find them all at our boutique.
