Schloss

Schloss is an Austrian style washed rind triple crème cheese made by US based Marin French Cheese Co. since the early 1900s. Made from pasteurised cow’s milk and a spoonful of cream, it is aged for five months. Later, it is repeatedly washed in brine to develop an orange rind and then packed in wooden cups.

Schloss reveals aroma of sour cream with a creamy, smooth middle and a chalky exterior underneath the sticky rind. The flavour is robust, earthy and meaty with slight hints of fruitiness and brandy. Pair the cheese with hearty California red wines, aromatic whites or dark beer.

This celebrated cheese has won many medals including silver at the 2014 World Cheese Awards.
