New! Cheese Club!


Bringing you Our Best in cheese 

Almonte Cheese ClubWe love to share what we love to eat…and we love cheese! We invite you, once a month, to try some of our favourite cheeses that we think you simply must try!

Members of the Pêches & Poivre cheese club will have the opportunity to taste some cheeses that we will not necessarily carry in the store on a regular basis.

We will feature mostly Ontario, Québec and other Canadian cheeses, but from time to time, will add select international cheeses. It is your chance to taste a variety of flavours, milk types and textures!

It happens once a month, and you can’t get it if you’re not a member! Sign up for a minimum of two months (does not need to be consecutive months).


2 MONTHS: $47 per month (plus delivery if required)

3 MONTHS: $45 per month (plus delivery if required)

What your membership includes

Each month we will prepare you a package including 3 cheeses (approximately 1½ lbs. total), crackers, and a delectable product from our shelves to pair with your cheeses. We will include tasting notes and wine or beer suggestions perfect to accompany your cheeses.

Pick up or Delivery

Your cheese club package, with the best cheeses we have to offer, will be ready the last Thursday of the month.

Come to the shop and pick up your package, or, for a minimal fee we can arrange for delivery in the areas of Mississippi Mills, Carleton Place, and some parts of Ottawa and Gatineau. Please call or email for more information on the delivery service.

Please call or email us and make your payment (cash, debit, Visa, MC) by the first Thursday of any month to become a member. IE to become a member beginning June 2014 and receive your first cheeses on Thursday June 26, you must register by Thursday June 5.

Canadian Cheese Awards – good luck to our cheese makers!

We are pleased, but not surprised, to find two of the cheese artisans, whose cheeses we have in our shop, in the finalists of the Canadian Cheese Awards for the best artisan cheeses made in Canada.  This is the biggest cheese competition in Canada with 76 producers from Newfoundland to British Columbia submitting 291 cheeses for judging.  The winners will be revealed during the awards ceremony, taking place in Toronto on April 7, 2014.

We want to wish the best to Maple Dale Cheese, finalist in the Mild/Medium Cheddar category (aged up to 9 months), for their Medium White Cheddar, and, for their 5 Year Old White Cheddar in the Aged Cheddar category (aged 4 years and more).  Good luck also to Glengarry Fine Cheese, finalist in the Washed Rind category for their most recent creation, ‘Nevis’.
