This combo offer combines two sensational cheeses matured by Swiss Pope of Cheese Rolf Beeler. 100% raw milk:
- 36 months matured Alp Sbrinz AOC, ca. 200g
The Sbrinz is produced with summer milk only, the utmost care and matured for at least 36 months making it a true raw milk specialty for the connoisseur. This full-bodied, brittle variety contains a wonderful aroma, as rich as the lush alpine meadows with their wild herbs.
- 18 months matured Gruyère AOP, ca. 200g
The Gruyère is undeniably one of the most influential Swiss cheese with its history dating 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.

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.
