About

Originally Gruyere cheese was only made in and around the Swiss town of Gruyere which was founded in the canton of Fribourg by the religious counts who settled there in the 9th Century. Nowadays, however, the production has spread a little wider, although the cheese is still made in village dairies.

Gruyere must be made in Switzerland due to its Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) and is made using knowledge that has been handed down through the generations. However, the French are in the habit of calling their Emmental under the name Gruyere, as is the case with a number of similar style, cooked cheeses like Comte and Beaufort.

This Gruyere Premier Cru is aged for a minimum of 12 months.
