Shakerag Blue’s colorful name is derived from the beautiful Shakerag Hollow atop the Cumberland Plateau. Legend has it a thirsty individual could leave a white rag and money in a tree stump and find a jar of moonshine in its place upon returning. An ode to all things Southern, Shakerag is a crumbly yet dense blue-veined cheese cloaked in local fig leaves which have been soaked in Chattanooga Whiskey, the first legal whiskey being distilled in the city since Prohibition. Its salty-sweet and fruity interior is reminiscent of root beer, and lends itself to more complex notes of savory bacon, dark chocolate, and tropical flavors towards the rind.
