A taste of Sweden since 1872
For 150 years we have been part of Swedish tradition. We have stood at a thousand and thousand banquet tables, among the purees and pâtés at royal weddings and among the herrings and potatoes in every home in the land. We’ve been there laughing, crying and dancing like frogs. We’ve been there when crayfish were served in the dill and songs were sung until the sun came up again.
There is something about these moments. The people, the emotions and the tables set. Something that fits so well with the blend of sweetness, saltiness, bitterness and umami that makes Västerbottensost® so unique. So unique, in fact, that even the simplest everyday dishes become an extraordinary taste experience.
We are proud to pass on Västerbottensost to new generations of cheese lovers around the world, so that they too can enjoy the cheese from our small dairy in Burträsk – a taste of Sweden since 1872.
Why can Västerbottensost® only be produced in one place in the world?
Does the secret lie in the unique production method that was invented as early as 1872?
The limestone-rich soil in Burträsk is believed to be the result of a prehistoric meteorite impact. Maybe that’s why Västerbottensost® can only be made here?
Both the vegetation and the local cows are affected by the many hours of sunshine during the summer months. Is this the solution to the Västerbottensost® mystery?
Is it the unique house flora in the small dairy in Burträsk that is the secret behind Västerbottensost®?
Perhaps the secret of Västerbottensost® lies in the unique recipe created and written down by Ulrika Eleonora Lindström in 1872?
Could it be something completely unknown in the area around Burträsk that explains why Västerbottensost® can only be produced right here?
Is milk the secret behind Västerbottensost®’s unique taste?
