Gruyere Alpage Moleson
- Animal Rennet
- Age: 18 Months
- Cow Milk
Gruyère Moléson is handmade from a single-family cheese dairy, and with every bite of this pliable, dense Gruyère, you can taste the artistry and dedication to craftsmanship. It matures for 18 months—the perfect amount of time to develop a balanced brothy and caramel flavor. Browned with age and pitted with tiny holes, its flavor is so nuanced and layered that it’s well worth eating as is or paired with slices of some hearty Tanara Culatta. Round out your spread with the acidity and spice of Pacific Pickle Works Asparagusto or the sweetness of Murray’s Sundried Cherries.
- The tradition of raw cow’s milk Gruyère dates back to the 13th century.
- The Alpine region views the creation of this cheese as an art form, passed down through the generations.
- At Moléson, they make their cheese over a wood fire in an Alpine hut.
- The term, “Alpage,” means that this cheese was made in the summer, when the cows are up in the mountains eating the alpine grass.
