Sbrinz AOP

The extra aromatic extra-hard cheese

Sbrinz AOP is an aromatic extra-hard cheese from Central Switzerland that has traditionally been made for centuries. 32 selected valley and mountain dairies produce this cheese each day from first-class raw milk, rennet and salt. Sbrinz is a 100% natural product made without any additives. It is even stored in its area of origin. Since 2002, Sbrinz has been awarded the “AOP”, or controlled term of origin label (Appellation d’Origine Protegé). This guarantees that all the Sbrinz cheese that goes on sale complies with the strict quality requirements set out in the specifications.

Matured for at least 18 months

It takes a long time, an extremely long time, before this aromatic cheese from central Switzerland is ready to be eaten. The maturing process lasts for at least 18 months – the longer the cheese is kept, the more aromatic and full-flavoured it becomes.
Sbrinz AOP is the only Swiss cheese that can be eaten in three different ways; at the age of 18 months, it can be sliced or shaved into extremely thin rolls. From the age of 24 months, it is ideal served as an aperitif or on a cheeseboard broken up into pieces (“Möckli”). Last but not least, grated Sbrinz gives many dishes that extra special touch. Sbrinz AOP is tremendously adaptable and tasty, perfect for every occasion!
