Drunkin Goat Cheese

I had some at a wine and cheese party and I must have more. Who has it? What is the best brand?

  1. It used to be available at The Cheesestore of Silverlake on Sunset... a little overwhelming for my taste, but I have a friend who shares your appreciation for it- she found it there.

    1. Beverly Hills Cheese Store has it. I've also seen it in a Whole Foods, but that was awhile ago and I can't even remember which Whole Foods I was in (you know, they all look the same with their faux zen woodwork, museum-quality produce displays, punky fishmongers, etc.)

        Whole Foods definitely carries it and if I'm not mistaken so does Bristol Farms (not 100% sure about that).

          Yep, Whole Foods has it. I usually get mine at the Whole Foods in West LA (National) or Brentwood. I'm pretty sure Cube on La Brea also has it!

            I think Bristol Farms has a great selection of cheeses; if they don't carry it, I know they would and could!

        2. Artisan Cheese Gallery in Studio City def has it. They also have a drunken cow milk cheese that is excellent!

          1. Saw it at the Silver Lake Gelson's this AM.
            In the "gourmet cheese" section.

            1. That sounds yummy. Do describe, please.

                Drunken Goat is a semi-soft center goat cheese. The outside is a shade of red / purple from the wine curing. The result is a sweet, soft, and smooth flavor and texture. When siting on a platter with every other cheese it was the first to be tried and the first to be gone. The hard cheese was to hard. The soft cheese was to soft. The taste and texture of Drunkin Goat was just right. The angel who brought this also brought some Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee to end the night – wow!

              2. Just went to a wine-tasting where they paired a Sparkling Cava by Gran Gesta with the Drunken Goat Cheese. An excellent match.

                Went looking for it and the Whole Foods in Glendale was carrying it.

                1. I saw it at Whole Foods in Brentwood today. I've had it before -- love it!

                  1. I'm pretty sure my husband buys it at TJs. (if not there, the other option would be whole foods, which other people have mentioned)
