Alpen Style & Swiss

Emmenthaler Swiss: What a versatile cheese! Great with fruit, on a sandwich or the base for Fondue. Unpasteurized Cow’s milk is what makes this stand out. Enjoy in its bright flavors and slight toasted bitterness on the finish. This is the “Original Swiss”! Pasteurized Cow’s Milk, Switzerland. 
Gruyere: Delightfully nutty, spicy, full-flavored, and aromatic when melted. Dice into salads, grate into an omelet or melt into fondue. Un-Pasteurized Cow’s Milk, Switzerland.
President Madrigal Cheese: This French 'Swiss cheese' is made from whole milk for a delicious sweet and nutty taste. The label says 'French cheese with holes', soft and smooth. It tastes indeed similar to a mild Emmenthaler and known to be similar to a Baby Swiss in the United States. Pair with fruity red and white wines. Pasteurized Cow’s Milk, France.
Leyden: Similar to a Gouda in look and texture, this mild cheese is overrun with Cumin seeds. Taste the distinctive bitter flavor and strong, warm aroma of the cumin as it melds with the creaminess of the cheese. Pasteurized Cow’s Milk, Holland.
Butterkase: A buttery cheese with a creamy texture. Its mild pungency makes it a perfect table cheese. Great to pair with a refreshing lager or a pint of ale. Pasteurized Cow’s Milk, Germany.
Switzerland Le Gruyere: This gruyere is perfect. Taste notes of brown butter and dried fruits. Perfect to slice thinly over a salad or snack on its own. Raw Cow’s Milk, Switzerland.
Comte- A.O.C.: (Pronounced CONE-tay) Dating back to the 12c, and once used as trade currency with neighboring countries. Each 110 lb wheel takes 160 gal of milk to produce. The Montbeliarde and Simmental cows must each have a full hector to graze on fresh, unfertilized alpine pasture. Sweet and nutty with notes of brown butter. Those featuring the iconic green bell are consider to be the very best. Suggested pairing: Pinot Noir, Chardonnay. Unpasteurized Cow’s Milk, France.
Jarlsberg: Buttery, rich in texture and mild flavor, this subtly sweet cousin to the Swiss is superb. Pasteurized Cow’s Milk, Norway.
Cave Aged Gruyere: Though traditionally used in Fondue and French onion soup, this 13c Alpine has endless possibilities. Beyond being a superb melter, it is also a delicious snacking cheese. Try it with slices of apple. Rich and creamy with notes of browned butter. Suggested Pairing: Chardonnay, and Alsatian whites. Unpasteurized Cow’s Milk, Switzerland.
