COLBY & COLBY-JACK
Colby and Colby-Jack Cheese, available as Amlat™ Premium Snack Cheeses, are similar Natural and Wisconsin Original cheeses…both compare in taste to a Mild Cheddar but have a softer, moist body and also a firm, open, lacey texture with tiny holes. The Colby-Jack is a combination of both Colby and Monterey Jack cheese curds knit to form an interesting texture and slightly different flavor.
Wines that complement these cheese varieties are red wines like Merlot, Chianti, Malbec and white wines like Pinot Noir, Zinfandel and Riesling. Beer pairings include Brown and Pale Ale, Pilsner and Wheat Ale. Scotch is also a whiskey that pairs well with these Wisconsin cheeses.
Snack foods to pair with the Colby and Colby-Jack cheeses are apples and pears or tomatoes and onions.
