Alter Schweizer

What do you get when you mix genuine passion for cheesemaking with superbly fresh Swiss milk? Culinary cloud nine! Our «Alter Schweizer» cheese spends ten months maturing and developing its sophisticated flavor blend: Strongly aromatic and surprisingly smooth. A rustic hard cheese with a crumbly texture which turns a subtle caramel note into a masterpiece of authentic cheese tradition. The lush green meadows of the region around Lake Constance provide a wonderfully fertile area for top-quality cow's milk.
