Appenzeller is a firm Swiss mountain cheese. Similar to Gruyere but sharper, this cheese has a more pungent farmyard aroma and a distinctively fruity taste, which lingers on the palate.

Originally from the mountain canton of Appenzeller, Switzerland, close to Austria, it is also manufactured in the Swiss cantons of Saint Gallen and Thurgau. Small brown Swiss cows graze on the rich pasture of the alpine forelands. The milk they produce is some of the best in the world, and made into Appenzeller. After so many years in production, the recipe for this cheese is still a secret. 

Appenzeller ages for 7 to 12 months and usually peaks at around 9 months. The interior has a characteristic light straw color which comes from continuously brushing the wheel with a special mixture of herbs, wine or cider and salt. This iconic cheese is a must-try for cheese lovers everywhere.
