Gruyère has its origin right in the heart of the foothills of the Fribourg Alps. It is undeniably one of the most influential Swiss cheeses with its history dates back to the pre-Roman era.
This particular Gruyère has been fully matured over 18 months and enjoys an aromatic-fruity flavour with a savoury, salty base. It’s simply a Rolf Beeler master cheese.
