Made in Kentucky

We’re excited to share our products with cheese lovers
Not only are we a Kentucky business, but we also strive to support other Kentucky businesses.

We use Kentucky products as ingredients in many of our cheese spreads. Our Wine Cheese is made with wine from Talon Winery in Lexington. We’ve created special cheeses made with craft beer from Mirror Twin Brewing in Lexington (Citranomical IPA) and 3rd Turn Brewing in Louisville (Swooly Jalapeno Kolsh).

Mac’s Cheese Spreads

Be it an “AHA!” moment that startles everyone around you, or a quick doorbell-like “ding!” that just goes off in your head, that feeling is clear and immediate.

Cheryl McDaniel -just knew- that her family had something good after taking a bite of her brother Larry’s homemade beer cheese recipe, something that he had casually whipped up for family and friends here and there. She was beyond impressed with its rich taste and chunky texture and knew full well that Larry’s beer cheese would win over everybody at any UK watch party, Derby dinner, or Friday night snack fest across the state of Kentucky. “People HAVE to try this!” It was so good, that she couldn’t wait to share it.

Though she jokes that she’s made every bad business decision in the book- Mac’s craft cheese spreads are a hit with Kentucky’s snackers. The “Kentucky Proud” label on each container shows just how much it means to Cheryl to shop locally, support locally, and partner locally.

Cheryl’s timing always seemed to work out perfectly at the last minute. She majored in Marketing in college, landing a large corporate job where she could enjoy the financial security of normal everyday life until that chapter closed. As with most entrepreneurial types-her management skills, her unique way of moving through the world, and her curious hunger for what’s next landed her in various different positions that didn’t quite bring her the joy she was seeking.

Eventually allowed herself the truth she knew all along- she should be running her OWN business.

11 years later, Cheryl is still putting the same passion and enthusiasm behind Mac’s Cheese Spreads – though she’s gotten slightly more creative with flavors, partnering with some of Lexington’s favorite local breweries and wineries to craft up 7 delicious, unique Cheese Spreads.

Our production facility is located in Nicholasville, Kentucky. We’re excited to share our products with cheese lovers throughout the Bluegrass State.
