This cheese is handcrafted by Fromart partner factory in Switzerland. The milk is sourced from the farms of a small area close to the German and Austrian border in north east of Switzerland and the strong herbal aroma of the cheese reflects this origin.
The hard brush rind is pale yellow to burnt orange, the aroma hints at spicy, fermenting fruit. The cheese is firm and dense, yet retains a certain suppleness. At first the taste is buttery, with fruity overtones.
Swiss Appenzell is an extraordinary cheese for those who like strong flavours, it has a unique spiciness and a lot of bite.
