Schnebelhorn made from raw cow’s milk gathered from a 50 cow herd of Brown Swiss and Braunvvien. Schneblehorn is a cream added cheeses aged for 8-9 months. It is richer and more decadent that most of the cheeses from this region. Named after the region’s highest peak, Schnebelhorn stands out for its elaborate texture and flavor characteristics. Consistently, Schnebelhorn has a forthcoming spiciness perfectly balanced by tremendous butter and cream. Great as a snack or in Alpine fondue.
Schnebelhorn pairs well with a Reisling, Gewürtztraminer, or a hoppy fresh IPA
Ingredients: raw cow's milk, salt, starter culture, rennet.

Delicious and distinctive
We enjoyed the Schnebelhorn - it seemed rather similar to Gruyere, so we substituted it in a fondue and were quite pleased with the result.
More people should know about Schnebelhorn. It's incredibly tasty. Great Swiss cheese. I made a cheese board recently for my friends and everybody loved this one.
