The older, the spicierIt takes time for Sbrinz AOC 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.
VersatileSbrinz AOC 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 AOC is exceptionally versatile.
Sbrinz Route: on the trail of the tradersA 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.
