Sbrinz, hardest of the hard born in the heart of Switzerland

One Sbrinz wheel of 45 kg requires over 600 litres of fresh raw milk. Every day the milk is delivered to the cheese dairies, quality-tested, poured into vats and heated up while continuously being stirred. Rennett is added to the hot milk, the mixture allowed to stand for a while before the mass is cut into equally sized particles by means of a cheese harp. This procedure separates the whey from the cheese mass. The mass is then poured into a mould, turned several times and pressed until no more whey is drained off.

The grainy cheese with the lively, spicy taste from Central Switzerland

Sbrinz AOP Switzerland is a perennial winner and time tested success. Besides being one of Central Switzerland's most famous and recognizable names - a distinction it shares with William Tell - this full-flavoured grainy cheese is a delicious treat for those who appreciate the good things in life.

No wonder, for Sbrinz AOP has a magnificent flavour which lies hidden beneath its hard, golden yellow rind, as rich as the alpine pastures with their tangy herbs.

Appreciated by cheese connoisseurs around the world. A delicacy on every cheese platter. A popular dessert cheese. A tasty basis for warm cheese dishes. Undoubtedly the ideal cheese for grating and thinly slicing.
