Immerse yourself in the captivating flavours of Stärnächäs Extra Mature, a remarkable cheese produced at the base of the majestic Säntis mountain near Appenzell. This cheese beautifully balances the characteristics of Gruyère and Appenzeller, offering a flavour profile that is both unique and irresistible.
Delight in the slightly supple and smooth texture of Stärnächäs, with occasional crystals and small holes scattered throughout its paste. While aged for a modest eight months, the cheese delivers a flavour experience that leaves a lasting impression. Although the sweetness is not as intense as that of an aged Gruyère, there is an undeniable quality to the combined flavours and texture that entices you to keep reaching for just one more bite!
Recognised for its excellence, Stärnächäs was crowned the Supreme Champion at the International Cheese Awards in 2016 in Nantwich. This accolade further solidifies its status as a cheese of exceptional quality and distinction.
