The king of Swiss cheese

This celebrated cheese takes its name from the valley (“Tal”) of the river Emme in the canton of Bern, where production of the cheese can be traced back to the 13th century. Emmentaler AOP is made from fresh untreated milk from cows fed on grass and hay but not silage. It takes about 12 litres of milk to make one kilo of cheese. The use of any additives is prohibited, as is the use of genetically modified ingredients.

Vacherin Mont-d'Or AOP

De zacht smeltende, onmiskenbare halfharde kaas uit de Waadtlandse Jura. In Vallée de Joux wordt de kaas al meer dan 100 jaar liefdevol met de hand gemaakt, vooral in de winter. Gemaakt van gethermiseerde melk, rijpt de kaas minstens 21 dagen lang. Elke kaas wordt omgeven door een band van dennenschors en verpakt in een in de regio gemaakt spanen doosje.

De zacht smeltende halfharde kaas uit de Jura.

Vacherin Mont-d'Or AOP: zo heet de onmiskenbare kaas- specialiteit van halfharde kaas uit de Waadtlandse Jura. In Vallée de Joux wordt de kaas al meer dan 100 jaar liefdevol met de hand gemaakt. Tijdens het rijpen in de traditionele affinagekelder krijgt hij zijn delicate, milde smaak. De typische, exquise zweem van tannine heeft hij te danken aan zijn gordel van inheems dennenhout. Vacherin Mont-d’Or AOP werd oorspronkelijk van oktober tot het voorjaar geproduceerd, omdat men dan te weinig melk voor het vervaardigen van de grote Gruyèrekazen had.

The uniquely spicy cheese from Appenzellerland.

Appenzeller ® is one of Switzerland’s great gastronomic treasures. The country’s spiciest cheese has been made by hand in the same way for more than 700 years. The gentle, hilly landscape between Lake Constance and the Säntis massif with its lush, healthy, nutritious herb-filled grass is the secret of the natural raw milk from which Appenzeller ® is made. The age-old craft of making cheese by hand is as much a part of the living heritage of the Appenzellerland as the local traditions of string music and rustic painting on wood.
