After five generations in the cheese business, Roth Kase USA still craft and cure Grand Cru Gruyère, their flagship cheese, in accordance with time-tested Alpine cheese making methods. Their expert cheese makers use imported copper vats to transform fresh milk from family farms into this award-winning cheese, which cellar masters then carefully cure on wooden boards in temperature and humidity-controlled cellars. By honoring their heritage and using the best resources Wisconsin has to offer, Roth Kase USA captures both the essence of classic Gruyère and the distinct terroir of America's Dairyland.
Their Grand Cru Gruyère Surchoix - the best of the best-is hand-selected for curing at least nine months, a cheese-plate centerpiece with a firm texture and complex flavors of caramel, fruit, and mushroom.
