395 - Spicherhalde


An earthy and buttery Bavarian cheese, only produced during the months of May through to September.

Made by the Vogel family, this is a high altitude cheese made using the milk from a small herd of Swiss Brown Cows. Every summer, the Vogel family move their small herd of Brown Swiss cows from the Austrian/German border, through the Allgäu Alps to their summer home in Bavaria. There, at 4800 feet, the cows graze on summer grasses and alpine flowers.

Using homemade rennet, curds are formed in traditional copper vats and then lifted and pressed into forms. The wheels are then placed in a brine bath for three days and then placed on wooden shelves to age for a year or more. The Vogels’ use this rich, flavourful milk to make just two wheels of cheese a day.
This cheese is seasonal and is only produced during the months of may through to September.

Spicherhalde is a full flavoured cheese which is earthy and buttery and with floral notes and a sweet nuttiness.
