Appenzeller® Black Label

This Appenzeller® packs a powerful flavour punch:

No other Appenzeller® than the Black Label represents better the characteristics of the people of its home region in the Alpstein: it has a robust and hearty character, is sometimes a bit sharp but still very well balanced. As the cheese ages, the cheesemakers search for the very best wheels and store them in a damp cellar at around 14 degrees Celsius to mature them for at least 6 months. This process creates a cheese with a unique flavour, a must have for those who love tart cheese.
