Appenzeller Extra cheese is special. The exclusive specialty is guaranteed to have been stored for six months. After 5 1/2 months experts check the progress of maturity and select only the best samples of the good cheeses. The extra-spicy, racy flavour is thanks to intensive treatment for half a year. Not every Appenzeller cheese can be matured long enough to become an Extra. Very intense and strong flavour. The EXTRA has a black-gold label.
