A Swiss household favorite, Gruyere is named after the village Gruyere in French-speaking Switzerland. The natural, rusty brown rind is hard, dry and often pitted with tiny holes. Slightly grainy, the cheese has a wonderful complexity of flavors - at first fruity, later becomes more earthy and nutty. At Cheese Traders, we receive Gruyere in 200 lbs wheels which are displayed in front of our cheese case.

Appenzeller cheese is a hard cow's-milk cheese produced in the Appenzell region of northeast Switzerland. A herbal brine, sometimes incorporating wine or cider, is applied to the wheels of cheese while they cure, which flavors and preserves the cheese while promoting the formation of a rind. The cheese is straw-colored and has a strong smell and a nutty or fruity flavor, which can range from mild to tangy, depending on how long it is aged.
