ORIGIN: Jasper Hill Farm, Greensboro, Vermont
Traditional Swiss Alpine cheeses like Appenzeller and Gruyere inspired the recipe for this American original original. Alpha Tolman has a buttery, toasted nut flavor when young, and develops bolder savory and caramelized onion notes as it matures. The texture is dense and smooth, typical of Alpine cheeses, making it a beautiful melter.
