Product Details

Switzerland's oldest extra-hard cheese has been produced in the central Swiss cantons for five centuries. As early as 1530, traders were transporting Sbrinz cheeses by mule from Brienz, via Meiringen and over the Grimsel and Gries passes, exchanging them for salt and wine. It was a good bargaining chip because under the hard rind of a 35-kilo cheese, a rich aroma is revealed, as varied as the green Alpine pastures from the aromatic herbs. An incomparable 'extra touch' is found in its fabulously tender and crumbly texture. Sbrinz is made from fresh raw cow's milk. After a long salt bath, the cheeses are placed in a so-called 'exudation chamber', where they exude fat and water at a temperature of 18°C. Their rinds are carefully cleaned at regular intervals. Thanks to a maturing and ripening period of at least 16 months, Sbrinz acquires a particularly crumbly, easily digestible consistency.
