Red Alder

Named for the imposing trees lining the rivers of the Olympic Peninsula, Red Alder is a natural rind, Alpine-style cheese. It is aged for two months, during which it is regularly hand washed in a brine solution. This helps develop its distinct reddish gray rind and nutty and fruity flavour.
