Kaltbach Alpine is a firm pressed, deliciously smooth, Swiss mountain cheese made using the finest, fresh Swiss cream and cows milk. Kaltbach Alpine in matured in caves that are found in the Santenberg mountain in Switzerland, where the cheeses have been matured since the 1950’s.
The cheeses are matured in the humid, cool temperatures of the Kaltbach sandstone caves for around 4-5 months, which gives the cheese a uniqueness and helps to enhance the flavour. Semi firm in consistancy, the thick, brushed rind cheese has a rich, melt in the mouth texture.
Kaltbach Alpine has all the qualities you would expect from any alpine cheese. It has a creamy, buttery and slightly nutty flavour and is a delicious alternative to Gruyere when cooking.
Please note all cheeses are hand cut, therefore the weights listed are approximate. We work very hard to cut them as accurately as we can!
