We love Alpha Tolman by Jasper Hill Farm.  Made with a proprietary blend of cultures, this "Mountain Cheese" (also known as Alpine Cheese) has a similar flavor profile to Gruyère AOP and Appenzeller. Alpha Tolman has a buttery, fruit & nut flavor when young, developing bold meaty, caramelized onion flavors as it matures. The texture is dense and pliant, easily portioned and ideal for melting. Received a Super Gold Award at the 2012 World Cheese Awards.

Jasper Hill Farm is one of the leaders of the artisanal cheese movement in America. They produce finely crafted cheeses from their small herd of Ayrshire cows, and they age a variety of Vermont cheesemakers’ cheeses in their seven underground vaults. The company excels at cheese affinage, making for consistently delicious artisanal styles..  

  • Alpha Tolman - Pair this with a robust ale, Pinot Noir, or Blake Hill Preserves French Onion Preserve. Shave onto a fennel, apple, and walnut salad. Melt it for fondue or onto a plate of fingerling potatoes, cured meat and natural sour pickles. Excellent decadent grilled cheese contender.

Milk: Raw Cow Milk
Rennet: Animal Rennet
Age: 18-22 months

This cheese fits well in any Grotto model.

We'll include digital literature on the best way to store and serve Alpha Tolman.
