ALPINDON: “Gift of the Alpine,” our premium cheese, is a firm cheese carefully modelled after French Beaufort d’Alpage. Following a centuries-old tradition, this cheese is hand-rubbed and made only with milk from summer pastures. It exhibits a smooth nut flavour, a complex finish, a rich golden interior and a dark textured rind. Additional ageing concentrates its flavours, deepens its complexity, and increases the sweet crystals that develop throughout the body of the cheese.
