Little has changed in Burträsk in the north of Sweden, where the cheese is still today made according to the same recipe, still with great care and love. Using carefully chosen ingredients and locally produced milk, the unique, nutty flavour can only be produced at the original Burträsk dairy – and only by giving it plenty of time, maturing for no less than 14 months. Since 1990, Västerbottensost is a Royal Purveyor and has been on the menu of Royal weddings as well as Nobel Prize banquets. Perfect as part of a cheese platter and as an irreplaceable flavour addition in all types of cooking, it is now a timeless delicacy that is especially appreciated during all traditional Swedish festivities, including Midsummer and crayfish parties.
