Appenzeller Switzerland

Appenzeller cheese is a hard cow's-milk cheese produced in the Appenzell region of northeast Switzerland. A herbal brine, sometimes incorporating wine or cider, is applied to the wheels of cheese while they cure, which flavours and preserves the cheese while promoting the formation of a rind.

Appenzeller has a documented history of at least 700 years. Today, about 75 dairies produce it, each with a different recipe for their brine wash. Most of the recipes are trade secrets.

Gruyere 1655 Switzerland Raw Milk

The 1655 brand of Gruyère AOP was created to distinguish the highest-quality Gruyeres. To qualify for the 1655 brand, a team of external experts rigorously test a dairy’s cheeses every month and grades them on a scale up to 20 points. Gruyère AOP Le Crêt has a five-year average of 19.67 points and is one of only three dairies to meet the 1655 criteria.

Producer: 

Emmi's Kaltbach cheeses are carefully crafted in the deep, cool Kaltbach Caves. Located in the Alpine Valley of Switzerland, these caves are a 22-million-year-old natural sandstone labyrinth with a small tranquil river running through. In fact, Kaltbach means “cold river” and it’s what allows for a constant humidity of 96 percent in the mineral-rich cave air. The natural climatic conditions in the caves regulates the humidity, which is a crucial part of the texture and flavour development and what makes this cheese unlike any other in the world.

Le Marechal Raw Milk Switzerland

A raw cow milk cheese produced in the artisanal cheese making facility of the Rapin family in the Vaud region of Switzerland. The cheese is named after the cheesemaker's grandfather who was a blacksmith, or Le maréchal-ferrant. Every wheel of Le Maréchal cheese has a large picture of the grandfather on the label and stamped on each wheel is the name Le Maréchal and a unique identification number.

Vacherin Mont d'Or

Vacherin Mont d'Or

Vacherin Mont d'Or hails from Switzerland on the border of France near the mountain D'Or. Traditionally made with the winter milk of the same cows that produce Gruyere in the summer, this cheese is only available from October until April, making it all the more precious. The cheese must be made from cows munching on straw and fodder; once outside to graze at pasture, their milk is used for larger alpine cheeses. Swiss regulations also dictate the cheese must be produced at elevations of 2,297 feet or higher.
