Aged to perfection, at six months this cheese is hitting all the right notes for a Gouda made from cow's milk in Central Switzerland. The cheese is made exclusively by Emmi cheesemakers in Emmen where it is ripened for three months before refinement in the Kaltbach Cave for the final three months. While in the cave, the cheese is smeared with a salt water brine and absorbs all the cave minerality and flora from the other cheeses. The result is a dark brown rustic rind, pale yellow paste, and a rich flavor of nutty caramel with a slight pear finish.
Pair with a floral dark honey or peach jam. Grate into a pear and arugula salad. Serve with tannic, mineral-rich cider, barrel-aged gin or smoky tea such as Lapsang or Russian Caravan.
• Made from pasteurized cow's milk.
• We cut and wrap this cheese by hand from a 9 lb wheel.

How We Ship
Our products are always shipped so they will arrive at your door in optimal condition! We’ve carefully selected packaging options that have minimal impact on the environment without compromising on food safety or quality.
For perishable orders, we line our shipping boxes with Tempguard - a unique, padded insulator made of 100% pre-consumer recycled paper material. We further control the temperature with recycled kraft paper fill and non-toxic frozen gel packs. In the summer months, we may include dry ice to ensure fresh delivery in very hot weather.
Note: Please join our efforts to be mindful of our environment and extend the life-cycle of our packaging, by recycling your shipping box, Tempguard liner, and kraft fill (all 100% curbside recyclable!). Store the gel packs in your freezer and reuse to keep your next picnic or road trip fare cool.
