MASTERPIECES FROM THE CAVES

Each Kaltbach™ cheese is carefully crafted in the deep, cool Kaltbach Caves. Located in the Alpine Valley of Switzerland, these caves are 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.
