Alpha Tolman


Firm, Alpine style, raw cow’s milk, Vermont</em

Produced by Jasper Hill Farm in Vermont, Alpha Tolman is an Appenzeller inspired cheese with buttery, fruity and nutty flavor when young, maturing into bold meaty, caramelized onion flavors as it ages. Made from raw cow’s milk, the brine-washed wheels are matured for eight to eleven months resulting in a dense, crystalline and pliant texture. Ideal for melting – melt onto a plate of fingerling potatoes, cured meat and natural sour pickles. Try pairing with a robust ale, plummy red wine, or onion jam.
