Best Mail Order Charcuterie

Best Mail Order Charcuterie

If you know us, then you know we are crazy about building charcuterie boards and especially eating them. Nothing is better for a party or intimate get together then some fine meat and cheese on a hearty plank of wood! No worries, you don’t actually have to put it on a piece of wood.

We tested samples of charcuterie from over two dozen sources to arrive at our top selections. Our picks were based on the following benchmarks:

  • Outstanding flavor
  • Character, including mouthful and tenderness
  • Impeccable ingredients
  • Flexibility, the number of ways it can be utilized (stand alone, accompany other foods, or a recipe ingredient)
  • Uniformity and consistency of product

The following selections are not ranked but all are stars in their own right and proved to be head and shoulders above those not making the cut.
