Twin Sisters Creamery, known for their popular Whatcom Blue cheese, is about to roll out Whatcom White cheese in February. According to Twin Sisters Creamery Co-Owner and Cheesemaker Lindsay Slevin, “Whatcom White is a mild table cheese with whole peppercorns added.” It will also be available at Haggen stores alongside their Whatcom Blue according to Slevin.
Both Whatcom Blue and Whatcom White are made using whole Jersey cow’s milk from Twin Brook Creamery and aged a minimum of 60 days.
Last year, Twin Sisters Creamery was awarded a People’s Choice award at the Washington Artisan Cheesemakers Festival in Seattle for their Whatcom Blue.
Twin Sisters Creamery retail store and cheese making facility is located at 6202 Portal Way.
