Smelly Cheese Co

Swiss Gruyère Etivaz

$22.00

Etivaz is a classic Swiss cheese made from raw cow’s milk and named after the small town in which it is produced. This cheese evolved in the 1930’s from the enthusiasm of a group of 76 devoted Gruyère-loving families who felt that government regulations were allowing cheese makers to compromise the qualities that made a good Gruyère so special. This devoted co-operative created Etivaz, using 100 year old traditional Gruyère methods. This includes using milk only from the summer months when the cows are grazing in the surrounding Alpine pastures. The result is a little creamier and more delicate than other Gruyère yet full flavoured and smooth. The flavour is herbaceous, floral and yeasty with a hint of smokiness.
