Alpha Tolman

Alpha Tolman is an Appenzeller inspired cheese with buttery, fruity & nutty flavour when young, maturing into bold meaty, caramelized onion flavours as it ages. Made from raw cow's milk, the brine-washed wheels are matured for eight to eleven months resulting in a dense, crystalline and pliant texture.

Alpha Tolman melts beautifully onto plate of fingerling potatoes, cured meat and natural sour pickles. Try pairing it with an onion jam, good, hearty ale or a plumy red wine.
