Appenzeller®: Swiss cheese that is made more than 700 years ago following an old craft tradition.

This variety is highly valued for its refined and strong taste, the result of the application of a mysterious marinade during ripening. This marinade is known as "sulz" and its ingredients are a secret that only two people know and is transmitted from generation to generation. Appenzeller® production began 700 years ago in the Canton of Appenzell (Eastern Switzerland). Only cheeses that score above 18.5 out of 20 can be marketed under Appenzeller®.
