Gruyère- or in German Greyerzer is a hard yellow Swiss cheese that originated in the cantons of Fribourg, Vaud, Neuchâtel, Jura, and Berne in Switzerland. It is named after the town of Gruyères. Gruyère is sweet but slightly salty, with a flavor that varies widely with age. It is often described as creamy and nutty when young, becoming more assertive, earthy, and complex as it matures. When fully aged (five months to a year), it tends to have small cracks that impart a slightly grainy texture.

At Swiss House Shop you may also find the Gruyère AOP cheese ‘Sale’, which is aged for at least 10 month, among a selection of other world-class Swiss cheeses such as the Emmentaler, Tilsiter, Appenzeller cheese and the Tete-de-Moine.
