15-year-old cheese proves popular

MINERAL POINT (WKOW) -- 1,600 pounds of sharp cheddar, made by Hook's Cheese Company, is believed to be the most mature cheese for sale in the country.

Tony Hook says he'll begin shipping his latest batch of rare 15-year-old cheddar in two weeks. Pre-orders have already accounted for 75-percent of the specialty cheese. It costs $50/pound.

Back in December, Hook sold 1,200 pounds of cheddar produced in 1994. It also sold at $50/pound and sold out in just two weeks.
