The taste of Switzerland since 1115
The spicy, mature taste with fine salt crystals, the fruity note, the fine aroma of roasted chestnuts or hazelnuts - Gruyère AOP is a cheese with an unmistakable character.
Its history dates back to the year 1115, when monks at the Rougemont monastery in the Gruyère region in West Switzerland began to cultivate the surrounding Alps. Gruyère AOP - the most influential and important Swiss cheese - is still today the favourite of the Swiss among the local cheeses.
The consistently high quality is not only ensured by the protected origin of each Gruyère AOP, but also by the authentic production according to a traditional recipe. Pure natural ingredients, processed in copper kettles, traditional maturation in the characteristic grainy, brownish smear rind - only in this way is a true Gruyère AOP produced.
