MASTERPIECES FROM THE CAVE

Welcome to our line of Kaltbach™ Cave-aged cheeses. The legendary Kaltbach Cave is home to some of the world’s most distinctive Emmi cheeses.

Kaltbach™ cheeses are carefully crafted in the deep, cool Kaltbach Cave located in the Alpine Valley of Switzerland. The Kaltbach Cave is a 22 million-year-old natural sandstone labyrinth with a small tranquil river running through. In fact, Kaltbach means “cold river” and it’s what allows for a constant humidity of 96 percent in the mineral-rich cave air. This natural process regulates the humidity, which is a crucial part of the texture and flavor development and what makes this cheese unlike any other in the world.

That's why each Kaltbach™ cheese is distinctive, unique and unforgettable.
