The well-known Appenzeller and one of Switzerland's oldest cheeses, owes its delicately aromatic taste to the treatment with the secret, legendary herb brine. Based on the strictest criteria, only the best wheels are selected and brought to us in the KALTBACH cave. The careful care by the hand of the cave master and the natural climate of the sandstone cave also give the Appenzeller the unique Kaltbach aroma.
