Meaning old oak, Ur-Eiche is made by master cheesemaker Christa Egli and her team at Chasi Girenbad in the Swiss Canton of Zurich. Christa's process starts with using milk that has been rested overnight before a house made culture blend is added. The cheese is washed in a brine aged in oak barrels as well as oak extract and aged for a minimum of ten months. The resulting wheels are savory with a woodsy aroma and the distinct, pineapple like sweetness found in alpine favorites like aged Gruyere.
