KALTBACH Appenzeller®

The famous Appenzeller® cheese owes its tangy flavor to the care with the secret, legendary herbal brine. Based on the strictest criteria, only the best wheels are selected and brought into the KALTBACH cave. The care by the cave master's hand and the natural climate of the sandstone cave give the Appenzeller® its unique KALTBACH aroma.
