Jewel of the Swiss mountains
Fresh and clean air, rich soil with powerful herbs, Mountain milk of pure nature and honest craftsmanship in the small mountain dairy: the result is Fior delle Alpi. A jewel of the Swiss mountains hidden in black rind.
The smell like grandma cooked milk, the taste of finest crystals of salt that melt in your mouth – Fior delle Alpi is unmistakable in its character, marked by its secluded home. Lush pastures with finest herbs give the fresh mountain milk its unique spicy and mature aroma. In the smoky and steaming Mountain dairy Fior delle Alpi is handcrafted to an ancient recipe.
Loving care, plenty of rest in the cheese cellars of Lustenberger & Durst for at least twelve months’ time – only then Fior delle Alpi reaches itsfull flavor and is released under meticulous care by our master affineur.
