Our Story

Our Story

Castello was founded in 1893 by master cheesemaker Rasmus Tholstrup. By nature, he was a restless explorer and never content with the ordinary, especially when it came to setting new standards in cheesemaking. His son shared his passion and in 1944 created a first-of-its-kind brie with a thin, delicate rind and a subtle creamy flavor: Castello® Extra Creamy Brie was born.
