The mild, spicy Appenzeller® Mildly spicy is treated with the secret herbal brine for at least three months and is one of the most famous Swiss cheese specialities. The idyllic Appenzeller hilly landscape with its rich herbal grass creates the optimal environment for the natural, strong raw milk used to make Appenzeller® cheese. The Appenzeller® Mildly spicy can be recognised by its silver label.

How we wrap your cheese

Freshness of your cheese is important to us. That's why - unless noted differently in the description - we package all of our cheese in vacuum bags to help minimize travel impacts. However, we understand that some of you prefer cheese being wrapped in cheese wrap. This option is available to you for a small fee (it takes more time to package the cheese this way, that's why we charge you a little bit more). Unless specifically noted in the description, all cheese will generally have a best before date of at least 14 days, vacuum packed cheese generally about 2 months. Please note that with cheese this is often only a guidance date and does not necessarily mean the cheese will be of lesser quality beyond that date. In fact many soft(er) cheeses are best kept close to or until after that date for maximum ripeness.

How the cheese gets to you

All Alpine Express cheese are shipped in environmentally friendlier, insulated cardboard boxes. The cheese is bolstered with recycled packing paper & kept cold with food grade ice gel pack(s). It is shipped the fastest possible service, usually Australia Post Express. See Australia Post's Express Delivery Estimator (origin is 'Brisbane Metro'). From time to time we may choose a different shipping provider depending on speed of service, costs and other factors.

Unless noted otherwise, all cheese boxes are sent on Mondays with an order cut-off time at 9am (Sydney time) that day. You will get a tracking number to follow your parcel's progress.

    Ever since we visited Appenzell and tasted this cheese, it has become Ian’s favourite . So glad we found The Red Cow. Thank you ,

    This Appenzeller is just what I need during our x-teens lockdown to get my spirit up. It almost feels like home. I also ordered some of the Gruyere selection and love them too but since I was missing the Appenzeller for years it is this that is medicine for my state of despair

      Thank you for the kind comments, Klara. We’re happy this cheese lifted your spirits and reminded you of Switzerland. Food can definitely do that! Thanks again!
