Originally opened in 1940, Murray's Cheese is a beloved tradition in Greenwich Village, with their own cheese-aging caves on Long Island. You may have even seen some of their varieties in a local Kroger's grocery store or featured in one of the 600+ restaurants and hotels that use the gourmet cheeses in their dining choices.

We love the amount of detail provided about the three cheeses that come with each delivery. For example, one month's varieties included "Truffle Tremor" goat cheese from California, "Marieke Gouda" from Wisconsin, and "Prairie Breeze" cheddar from Iowa. Each one is described in mouth-watering detail and comes with a drink pairing suggestion for even more enjoyment.

Membership Overview:

  • Cheese Selection: Three half-pound varieties per shipment
  • Duration: 4, 6, or 12 months
  • Frequency: Monthly only, delivered on the second Thursday of the month
  • Shipping: Included

Murray's is the only retailer in our review of Cheese Clubs that cuts each cheese selection to order. Because cheese flavors can change from month to month, Murray's cheesemongers sample the cheeses in their storage caves and select the three most flavorful varieties for that month's delivery. Each wedge is wrapped in special paper that allows the cheese to keep maturing even during the delivery process and stops it from drying out. All orders are shipped in lined thermal boxes with gel packs, keeping the cheese cool to cold while en route. And, if you're giving the Cheese Club subscription as a gift, you can have the deliveries shipped in a Murray's gift crate for an extra $15.

You will want to keep an eye on the calendar: every delivery comes on the second Thursday of the month. If, for some reason, that date isn't going to work - you'll be out of town, or your gift recipient will be on vacation - you'll need to get in touch with Murray's customer service department at least 24 hours in advance to delay the shipment.

Looking for a little extra savings? Watch out for pop-up offers: when we visited the Murray's site, we were given a 10% discount for signing up for their email newsletter. However, be aware that the discount will only apply to a regular order, not for the Cheese Club membership.

Customers have plenty of good things to say about Murray's cheese. From celebrity fans like Oprah, who put the Cheese Club on her Must-Haves list, to the everyday clients who left glowing reviews on the Murray's website, people love the unique varieties and tantalizing flavors in each shipment.

Murray's knows cheese. And if you're looking to get to know cheese better than ever, you won't be disappointed by their Cheese Club membership.
