hardest of the
hard born in the heart of Switzerland
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.

golden yellow rind, as rich as the alpine
pastures with their tangy herbs.
