ALPINDON: “Gift of the Alpine,” our premium cheese, is a firm cheese carefully modeled after French Beaufort d’Alpage. Following centuries old tradition this cheese is hand-rubbed and made only with milk from summer pastures. It exhibits a smooth nut flavour, a complex finish, a rich golden interior and a dark textured rind. Additional aging concentrates its flavours, deepens its complexity, and increases the sweet crystals that develop throughout the body of the cheese.

We recommend that the cheese is brought to room temperature for one half hour before cutting and serving. For the most complex and representative flavour, cut the top rind of a wedge and cut slices from tip to rind.
