Located in Colchester, CT Mark Gillman and his mother Elizabeth MacAlister produce some of the top cheeses in the country including their award winning Hooligan. Hooligan is their signature “stinky” cheese that many food lovers consider to be their best variety. Hooligan was awarded the top prize in the Outstanding Dairy category from Gallo Family Vineyards 2005 Gold Medal Awards, and it was selected by both Saveur magazine and Slow Food USA as one of the top American cheeses. Made in 1.3 lb wheels, Hooligan is a ripe washed-rind cheese with a soft creamy interior and a gorgeous orange rind. Hooligans are bathed twice a week in brine to encourage the growth of pungent, surface-ripening bacteria. Hooligan melts super sexy.
