Stärnächäs translates as ‘star cheese’, and it has certainly become a star in the world of artisan cheese.
Produced at the foot of the Säntis mountain near Appenzell and aged for 8 months, Stärnächäs has a flavour that sits somewhere between a Gruyère and Emmental. The texture is slightly supple and smooth, with only the occasional crystal and a few small holes found within the paste. It tastes deliciously complex, sweet, fruity, nutty and robust.
