Gruyère Cheese

A yellow Swiss cheese typically aged 5-12 months made from high-quality cow's milk that fed solely on natural forage and fresh grass. It has a sweet yet a little salty taste with a creamy, nutty, and earthy flavor. It is traditional and unpasteurized, with a natural, rusty brown rind that is hard, dry, and pitted with tiny holes. The cheese is darker yellow than Emmental but the texture is more dense and compact. Slightly grainy, the cheese has a wonderful complexity of flavors - at first fruity, eventually becomes more assertive and complex.

Named after the town Gruyère in Switzerland born in 1115 and gained the French certification AOP as protected designation of origin.

With its distinct yet not overpowering taste, it is among the finest types of cheese for baking. It is good for melting, too.
