The Grey Owl is a craft cheese with an ash grey rind. Its snow-white paste features a chalky texture with a smooth mouthfeel. It has subtle caprine aromas and a delicately fresh flavour that is lightly salty and tangy.
Grey Owl is the Amerindian name of the British Archibald Stanfield Belancy. The famous naturalist and Amerindian enthusiast immigrated to Canada in 1906. He was introduced to the aboriginal way of life by his first wife. A writer and lecturer, he was one of the first champions of nature in the country. He spent almost two years on the shores of Lake Témiscouata. This ashy cheese was introduced in 2009.
