Located in:Cheese, Switzerland
Matured to perfection, Cave Aged Emmental is a special taste experience! Unlike traditional Emmental (also known as Swiss cheese), this one has a dark brown rind and a unique, nutty, full-flavored taste. It is manufactured by Emmi, master cheesemakers since 1782. Made in massive 200 pound wheels from pure, unpasteurized cow's milk, this special "Swiss" is aged for at least twelve months in sandstone caves deep below the Santenberg in the Canton of Lucerne. Using ancient techniques, a constant temperature and humidity can be achieved in the caves all year round, ensuring perfect development of every cheese Emmi produces.
  • Made from unpasteurized cow's milk.
  • Whole form of cheese is 45 lbs.
  • We cut and wrap this item by the pound.
  • Please contact us if you would like to purchase the whole form.
