Appenzeller has a rich history dating back centuries. Its distinct flavor and production methods have been passed down through generations of skilled cheesemakers.
White Label Appenzeller is set apart from other Apenzellers thanks to an extra portion of cream and a short aging period, resulting in a rich and creamy cheese. It has a firm texture with small, irregular holes, and a natural rind that adds depth to its flavor profile. What truly sets it apart, however, is the complex blend of flavors it offers. White Label Appenzeller boasts a harmonious combination of nuttiness, herbal notes, and a hint of fruitiness.
This cheese is made from raw cow's milk, sourced from local farms in the Appenzell region. The exact recipe for the secret herbal brine used to wash the cheese's rind is closely guarded by each Appenzell cheese dairy. This aromatic brine, consisting of a blend of wine, spices, and herbs, is what imparts the cheese's unique flavor. The cheese undergoes a careful aging process for three months, during which it is lovingly turned and brushed with the secret herbal brine. This process contributes to the development of its distinct flavor profile and helps it mature into a true culinary masterpiece.
White Label Appenzeller Cheese is not just a cheese; it's a versatile ingredient that enhances a wide range of dishes. Whether grated over pasta, melted into a fondue, or enjoyed on a cheese board, it adds a touch of Swiss authenticity and flavor to any meal.
