FOR THE LOVE OF CRAFTSMANSHIP

Monks originally produced this specialty cheese in the 12th century at the monastery of Bellelay, Switzerland. For a time, it was considered so valuable, tenant farmers used it as currency to pay landowners. Today’s cheesemakers create it in one-to-two-pound cylinders exclusively in the mountainous area of Jura.

  • Aged A Minimum Of 60 Days
  • Raw Cow’s Milk
  • Animal Rennet

Made from fresh, part-skim cow’s milk, this tangy, semi-hard cheese ages on small spruce planks. Connoisseurs prize it for its sharp, aromatic character. Rather than slice this cheese, it is best gently pared with a girolle, a tool that creates decorative rosettes and reveals the sharp, aromatic character.
