Aromatic, sweet and delightfully intricate in flavor, Emmentaler is a semi-hard cheese often identified by interspersed cherry-sized holes. Boasting tones of ripe fruit and hazelnuts, it has no traces of acidity, and features an even rind with a firm and dense body. Regarded as an integral part of Swiss heritage, Emmentaler is deeply versatile and suited for all manners of culinary escapades.
Originally from the heartland of the Emme valley, Emmentaler is traditionally made from raw cow’s milk and can be aged for up to 18 months. Not only limited to Switzerland, German and French versions share identical qualities to those of the Swiss variant.
