Inside the Murray’s cheese caves

Murray’s Cheese is regarded by most to be the world’s best cheese shop. In business since 1940, it’s a New York City landmark, the oldest cheese shop in the city. Like us, they think of themselves as a dairy company first. They’ve earned a reputation for scouring the earth for the world’s best cheese and bringing it in.

Being on the shelves there means something—both to us and the rest of the world.

They also provide the cheese served at a long list of some of the best restaurants in the country. The French Laundry, Daniel, Jean Georges, Per Se, Blue Hill, Eleven Madison Park, Le Bernardin, etc, etc, etc. More James Beard Award-winning chefs than you can shake an 80 lb. wheel of Gruyere at.

Before our beer float party last week (towards the bottom), Murray’s President and COO, Matt Wiant, gave us a tour of their cheese caves where they age over 200 kinds of cheese. Unbelievable stuff. Best Wi-Fi network name ever.
