The Most Expensive Kind of Cheese

Cheese has become so affordable that it's difficult to believe it was ever considered a luxury item. But not all cheeses are made equal; some are very expensive. Here are the top 10 most expensive cheeses in the world, so you may learn further about them.

1 - Cabrales Cheese: $16,000

Cabrales Cheese

Cabrales is a handmade blue cheese that boasts the honor of being the most expensive cheese ever sold at auction. Valeriu, a Spanish cheese factory, makes this semi-hard cheese. At the Cabrales Cheese Competition in August 2018, 15 restaurants competed for a 5.78-lb (2.62-kg) chunk of Cabrales cheese. The winning price was a staggering $16,000 after two hours. The owner of the Llagar de Colloto, Ivan Suarez, purchased this expensive cheese. He offers Cabrales cheeses in his restaurant since he loves them so much.

2 - Pule: $600-$1,000 per pound


Using 60% Balkan donkey milk and 40% goat milk, Serbian cheese called "pule cheese" or "magareci sir" is produced. Pâté, known as "the most costly cheese in the world," costs $1300 per kilogram. There are only around 100 jennies in the landrace of Balkan donkeys that are milked for Pule, and it requires 25 liters (6 + 1/2 US gal) of milk to produce one kilogram (2 lb 3 oz) of cheese, which is why it is so expensive.

3 - Moose Cheese: $500 per pound

Yet, cheeses made from cow, goat, and sheep's milk have been available. We have a cheese prepared with moose milk that is the third most costly cheese in the world. The Swedish company Elk House manufactures and sells moose cheese. On account of its scarcity, it is also among the priciest cheeses in the world. Due to their demand for gentle handling and comfort, moose are very challenging to milk. Their milk will stop flowing if they are anxious or startled while being milked.

4 - White Stilton Gold: $400 per pound

Extra Old Bitto Cheese

This cheese, from the Valtelline valley in Lombardy, Italy, is also called Bitto Storico or Bitto Ribelle, and it can be aged for up to 18 years! It is thus the world's oldest edible cheese. The addition of 10–20% goat's cheese in addition to the cow's milk allows for the lengthy maturing. The creamy cheese costs $150 per pound and boasts grass and hay scents.

7 - Rogue River Blue Cheese: $50 per pound

Rogue River Blue Cheese

Its name comes from the Rogue River in Oregon, where all this cheese is only produced once a year in the fall. In the Rogue River Valley, the autumn rain causes the grass to grow later in the year. This keeps the cheese moist and fresh while also improving its texture.

8 - Caciocavallo Podolico: $50 per pound

Caciocavallo Podolico

Although caciocavallo, which means "horse cheese," is not produced using horse milk, it instead alludes to how the cheese would be transported by horse from the hills where it is made. Podolico is another name for a rare breed of cattle known as Podolica that grows in southern Italy.The milk has a unique aftertaste because the cattle's summer diet includes local berries and grass.

9 - Jersey Blue: $45 per pound

Willi Schmid, a Swiss cheesemaker, was the first to create this flavorful, prize-winning cheese. Despite its American-sounding name, the cheese is actually Swiss and bears the name of the breed of cow from which it is made. This cheese seems like a work of art to me; it is not surprising that it received two awards.

10 - Winnimere: $35 per pound


Vermont is where this smooth, gooey, and creamy cheese is from. This cheese is only made in the winter as part of a tradition. Therefore, be sure to get plenty of this cheese so that you don't run out before more is produced.
