L’Etivaz AOP is a strong, rare alpine cheese from the Vaud Alps, which is only produced during the summer months, in small quantities by hand over an open fire.
L’Etivaz AOP is a hard cheese made using unpasteurised milk.
L’Etivaz AOP has a distinctive, tangy, fruity flavour with a slightly nutty note. The flavour varies from Alp to Alp, depending on the diet of the cows. The cheese ranges in colour from ivory to light yellow. The wheels weigh between 15 and 35 kilograms. Etivaz AOP is matured for between five and 13 months and can be stored for very long periods.
