Its history dates back to the year 1115, when monks at the Rougemont monastery in the Gruyère region in West Switzerland began to cultivate the surrounding Alps. Gruyère AOP – the most influential and important Swiss cheese – is still today the favorite of the Swiss among the local cheeses. Gruyere is a Swiss staple and beloved cheese around the world. Switzerland is so proud of this cheese that its production is strictly regulated. Any cheese bearing the name 'Gruyere' can be trusted as the authentic product of Switzerland, made in the traditional way. Gruyere is a raw cow's milk cheese with deeply complex and delicious flavors of butter, nuts, grass, and brothy meatiness. It's a classic ingredient in fondue and for melting. When melted the cheese becomes velvety soft, with a gooey stretch that cheese lovers dream about. Gruyere is available at different ages, after various stages of maturation. The longer the cheese is aged, the more intense the flavors will be.
