Kootenay Alpine Cheese Company from British Columbia is making an exquisite cheese. Their Alpindon: “Gift of the Alpine,” is a firm cheese carefully modeled after French Beaufort d’Alpage.
Following centuries old tradition this cheese is hand-rubbed and made only with milk from summer pastures. It exhibits a smooth nut flavour, a complex finish, a rich golden interior and a dark textured rind.
Additional aging concentrates Alpindon’s flavours, deepens its complexity, and increases the sweet crystals that develop throughout the body of the cheese. Family Whole raw organic cow’s milk, cave aged, hand-rubbed natural rind cheese.
