Product details

Produced at the foot of the Säntis mountain near Appenzell, Stärnächäs has a flavour that sits somewhere between a Gruyère and an Appenzeller. The texture is slightly supple and smooth, with only the occasional crystal and a few small holes found within the paste. The sweetness is not as intense as that of an aged Gruyère, as the cheese is aged for only eight months. However, there is a quality about the flavour combined with the texture that makes it hard to stop going back for just one more nibble.     

Supreme Champion at the International Cheese Awards 2016 in Nantwich

*A whole Stärnächäs Extra Mature weighs 6kg. Smaller weights are a cut of a whole cheese.

Freshly cut & wrapped

We unashamedly source, care for and sell the best cheese, because that is what we believe in. Our trained cheesemongers cut every piece to order, by hand, and wrap it in our waxed paper. We do this because it is the most respectful way to treat this precious food.
