Sbrinz Alpage is truly a rare cheese made with milk from brown cows that graze on Swiss Alpine pastures thousands of feet above sea level. This Sbrinz is aged for three years and develops an extra hard, golden interior that's best enjoyed broken into chunks onto the cheeseboard to show off its beautiful crystalline structure. Its flavors are complex, with notes of toffee, meatiness, and a citrusy chamomile finish.
Sbrinz has been produced in Switzerland for centuries.
