This traditional Bratkäse comes from the Seiler Dairy in Sarnen using pristine, pre-alpine milk for their production. The Bratkäse is an about 900g wheel made from pasteurised cow’s milk. It’s recipe is based on a long tradition from this part of Switzerland. The cheese rivals the better known Raclette with it’s flavour and particularly it’s fabulous melting characteristics.
This cheese is vacuum shrink wrapped for maximum freshness and lasts for up to 2 months after purchase if stored correctly.

How we wrap your cheese
Freshness of your cheese is important to us. That’s why – unless noted differently in the description – we package all of our cheese in vacuum bags to help minimize travel impacts. However, we understand that some of you prefer cheese being wrapped in cheese wrap. This option is available to you for a small fee (it takes more time to package the cheese this way, that’s why we charge you a little bit more). Unless specifically noted in the description, all cheese will generally have a best before date of at least 14 days, vacuum packed cheese generally about 2 months. Please note that with cheese this is often only a guidance date and does not necessarily mean the cheese will be of lesser quality beyond that date. In fact many soft(er) cheeses are best kept close to or until after that date for maximum ripeness.
