Description

Alpine cheese from the picturesque Lucerne region

This cheese is produced in about 6kg wheels at the Alpage Dairy run by Reto and Sili Theiler at 1,250m above sea level. The dairy lies in the picturesque ‘Entlebuch’ a UNESCO biosphere near Lucerne. Only the highest quality, unpasteurised raw milk is used to make this superbe alpine cheese. In terms of flavour the Luzerner Alpkäse is of the stronger kind, perfect for anyone that like matured, full flavour raw milk cheese.

 

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.

How the cheese gets to you

All Alpine Express cheese are shipped in environmentally friendlier, insulated cardboard boxes. The cheese is bolstered with recycled packing paper & kept cold with an food grade ice gel pack. It is shipped via Australia Post’s Express Post service. Please check if your delivery postcode is part of it, or see Australia Post’s Express Delivery Estimator (origin is ‘Brisbane Metro’). Note: local pick-ups or Brisbane Metro Courier services are no longer offered.

Unless noted otherwise, all Cheese Boxes are sent on Mondays with an order cut-off time at 9am (Sydney time) that day. You will get a tracking number to follow your parcel’s progress.

Due to COVID-19 anticipated delays with Australia Post we will pack all deliveries with extra ice packs and insulation. To cover these costs we will have to add a $5 fee for orders under $100. This fee will appear during check-out. Thank you for understanding.

    This may be new but don’t miss it. It demonstrates that each quality Swiss cheese has its unique particular rich combination of flavours which are actually more apparent when the cheeses are not too old as with this smooth flavour rich mid-aged cheese. You can smell and taste the diversity in the mountain pastures where the cows feed in summer. The cheese diversity is greater again when you visit the local cheese shops for these mountainous regions, but finally some of these can be found here and this is one of them
