Bismark is a raw sheep's milk cheese made by the Grafton Cooperative Cheese Company in Vermont, United States. It is a cave aged cheese, meaning Bismark is carefully matured in Grafton's cave for a minimum of three months before being sold in the market.

This light and crumbly cheese is named after a legendary and majestic Vermont ram from the late 19th century. It starts soft, sweet and tangy and builds to a hazelnut, creamy finish with notes of butter. As the cheese ages, they are replaced by more complex, aged characters. It pairs well with a bright, fruity red wine.

This celebrated cheese has won many international awards including Super gold at the 2014 World Cheese Awards. It has been judged as one of the world's 62 best cheeses.
