Aromatic hard grating cheese from the heart of Switzerland.

Sbrinz AOP is a spicy hard grating cheese that has been made in Central Switzerland for hundreds of years. 32 selected cheese dairies in the valleys and up on the summer pastures produce the cheese every day from the finest-quality raw milk, rennet and salt. Sbrinz AOP is a completely natural product, without any additives. The aging also takes place in the region of origin. Since 2002, Sbrinz has been protected by the AOP label (Appellation d’origine protégée – registered designation of origin), which guarantees that only cheese made within the specified region, and of the highest quality is offered for sale.

The older, the spicier

It takes time for Sbrinz AOP to develop its full flavour, a lot of time. Aging takes a minimum of 18 months; the more mature the cheese, the more aromatic and spicy its taste.

Versatile

Sbrinz AOP is the only Swiss cheese that may be savoured in three different ways. From the age of 18 months it can be sliced into wafer-thin curls. From the age of 24 months, broken into chunks with a Sbrinz chisel, it makes the perfect accompaniment to an aperitif, and will enhance any cheese platter. When grated, its spicy aroma adds the perfect finishing touch to many dishes. Sbrinz AOP is exceptionally versatile.

Tips

Sbrinz Route: on the trail of the traders

A fascinating historic trail leads through pristine scenery along a route used since ancient times by muleteers, traders, craftsmen, pilgrims and smugglers. The muleteers whose job it was to carry vital provisions across the Alps were expert at devising the most efficient way to cross from one valley to the next. The Sbrinz Route came about as the shortest direct crossing through the Alps between Lucerne and Domodossola. It was named after the celebrated cheese, which was once transported along this trail in large quantities for trading.
