Appenzeller Extra

Weight: 400

Maturation: at least 6 months

Cheese Type: Uncooked, Pressed cheese

Produced between the Constance Lake and the Santis Massif, in North-Eastern Switzerland, Appenzeller is made from cow’s milk and has a history dating back more than 700 years. Its specificity is due in large part to the ripening process for which brine (the ‘Sulz’) is used, composed in particular of vegetal ferments, white wine and spices.
The texture of Appenzeller is firm, supple and very smooth, dotted with occasional holes. The interior paste is ivory-white in color. Flavors are incredibly robust, rich and complex, including herbaceous, savory notes of flowers and grasses, accompanied by a rich, mineral tang.

Fun Fact: The official ‘Sulz’ recipe is kept in a bank safe. Only two people per generation have access to it.
