Ultra-rare 20-year Wisconsin cheddar will be sold for $209 per pound
Mineral Point, Wisconsin is home to Hook’s Cheese Co., owned by Tony and Julie Hook. Since 2000, something very special has been incubating in their cheese cave, and it will soon be ready to make its grand debut: A 20-year aged cheddar that will sell for $209 per pound. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that this is the second time the Hooks have released this exceptionally rare cheese and at this same price point; last time, in 2015, all 450 pounds of it sold out in two days. It seems that money is no object when limited-run cheese is involved. This year, they’ll be selling 500 pounds.
