Authentic Emmentaler is one of the world's most awe-inspiring cheeses, and one of the biggest. Weighing in at 200 pounds, a wheel of Swiss Emmentaler is made high in the Swiss Alps from the highest quality milk and with an unparalleled devotion to tradition.

Unfortunately, this cheese's iconic holes and mouthwatering nutty-sweet flavor have led to endless imitators, most lacking in flavor and integrity.

This Emmentaler is the real deal: made near Lucerne and aged in Emmi's Kaltbach Caves for a year. The caves, formed 22 million years ago, have the perfect ambient environment for aging these majestic wheels of cheese.

This cheese is aromatic and complex. The texture is dense, firm and elastic, with a pleasant chew when cold, and an unctuous mouthfeel at room temperature. The flavors are nutty, slightly sweet, gently salted, and reminiscent of green Alpine fields.

A classic for sandwiches or fondue, this one's good enough to eat alone, or take center stage on a fine cheese board.

This AOC Emmentaler received a Gold Medal in the World Cheese Awards in 2010. Try with oaked Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, gin and tonic.
