Caring For Your Cheese
Shipping Notes


Appenzeller is a cow’s milk cheese produced in the mountains of Switzerland. It’s most recognizable feature is the tan color of its rind. This color comes from the secret brew that the wheels are bathed in as they age. The concoction is said to be made from some combination of wine, cider, herbs and spices, but no one can know for sure. This recipe has been in use for over 700 years that we know of.

Beneath the mystery of Appenzeller’s rind lies the pale milky colored Paste of a semi hard Swiss cheese with small to medium sized holes.

Appenzeller Cheese has a sharp flavor profile, with traces of spicy and herbaceous flavors left by its secret marinade, and a distinctly fruity tang. Appenzeller makes up one third of the Swiss’ classic fondue trio and melts exceptionally well. Try pairing this cheese with a Merlot or a Sauvignon Blanc.

Upon receipt of your order the ice pack may no longer be frozen. This is expected and should not be the cause of alarm. The cheese should be cool to room temperature. Once rewrapped and stored properly the cheese will last up to 3 weeks.

For optimal storage allowing the cheese to breathe and retain moisture wrap the cheese in wax paper, plastic wrap or tin foil upon arrival.

A - Bloomy rind, tomes, hard or dry rind cheeses - wrap only the cut surface in plastic wrap, leaving the rind exposed so the cheese can breathe.

B - Blue cheeses should be wrapped securely in tin foil.

C - Washed rind cheeses should be wrapped in wax paper.

D - Small cheeses such as goat’s milk crottin should be wrapped in wax paper.

E - Soft cheeses store well in waxed paper or sealed containers.

Store your cheese in a cool, damp place such as a wine cellar, larder, wine cabinet, or in the vegetable drawer of your refrigerator (the warmest part of the refrigerator).

As a general rule, aged hard cheeses last longer than softer, less aged varieties.

For the fullest flavor it is recommended to bring cheese to room temperature before serving.
