Von Mühlenen's Le Gruyère Switzerland AOP Classic is the original from Switzerland. It is produced the traditional way in small local village dairies, without additives, using only pure raw milk, natural cultures and rennet. Matured for 6 months in climate-controlled cellars, it is brushed with salt water once a week and ripened to perfection. Originally produced in the Fribourg area, it is now crafted throughout Western Switzerland. Le Gruyère Switzerland AOP is produced and ripened exclusively in the canton of Fribourg.
