Best high-end butter?

    1. Salted or sweet? I really like Pamplie, for one....

      1. Lactantia My Country cultured unsalted

        1. I like: Pamplie, L'Echire, Sill Le Gall de Bretagne, Double Devon, Vermont Butter & Cheese, Ronnybrook

          Disappointing for me: La Baratte des Gourmets, Strauss Family Butter, Parmigiano-Reggiano by Monteniari, Lescure, Kerrygold Irish, Lurpak, Ben's

          Still on the lookout...

          1. re: Pupster

            I like Plugra for every day use, and Vermont Butter & Cheese for spreading on bread. I too was disappointed by Lurpak.

          2. For cooking I usually use Cabot 83 and I like Vermont Butter & Cheese cultured, but I have to admit we use Kerrygold most for spreading. Sometimes Brazilian butter from Minas Gerais, but it varies in quality. Had a few others, but these are the easiest to purchase.
