The Red Cow is the importer with the most raw milk cheese varieties in Australia and we were the first to make ‘raw milk cheese’ the key part of our marketing strategy.
And since the 17 October is all about this type of cheese, we don’t want you to miss out. So, to celebrate, we’ve created the following amazing pack available for a short time only:
- Sélection Rolf Beeler Swiss Gruyère AOP 18 months, ca. 200g
18 months matured, high altitude Gruyère AOP, selected and matured by the Swiss Pope of Cheese, Rolf Beeler
- Nidwaldner Alpkäse Bleiki, ca. 200g
Produced on 1,400 m.a.s.l daily during the summer months. Unpasteurised raw milk is being used, fresh from the surrounding alps to make this superb alpage cheese. This particular batch was produced in August 2019.
- Urnäscher Hornkuhkäse, ca. 200g
Made from unpasteurised milk from cows with horns, hence its name (cows with horn cheese). Matured for 7 months, this cheese is full flavoured but retains a lot of moisture, therefore feeling creamy on the palate.
- 1 jar of Birehong Pear Reduction
Birehong is made only with one ingredient: pears. It’s the perfect accompaniment to these raw milk cheeses and like the cheese, it’s a natural product without preservatives or any other additives. Made in Switzerland.
This pack is only available for purchase until midnight, Sunday 18 October 2020 (AEST) or until sold out. First dispatch on 12 October, second on 19 October.
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 food grade ice gel pack(s). It is shipped the fastest possible service, usually Australia Post Express. See Australia Post’s Express Delivery Estimator (origin is ‘Brisbane Metro’). From time to time we may choose a different shipping provider depending on speed of service, costs and other factors.
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.
