Can I taste your cheese before buying?
At the moment, we only have two varieties in stock. If you''d like to order samples, please enquire via e-mail.
How long can I store the cheeses in the original vacuum pouch?
In the fridge at about 5°C, the cheese can last for at least three months in its vacuum pouch. There are no chemicals whatsoever in alpine cheese – not from the grass the cows had eaten, not in the milk, nor in anything else.
How long can I store the cheeses once opened?
They should, properly stored, last at least a week or two. We think, in contrast to other cheese experts, that cling film, applied tightly (!), is a good way to store cheeses in the fridge. Certainly better than, as often recommended, to store them in a damp cloth, because the dampness will accelerate the building of mould. A damp cloth might be ok for soft cheeses like Brie. Cheese has to be stored in the fridge, of course, at the driest possible place, ideally between 1°C and 5°C.
Don’t forget to make sure they're at room temperature before serving to get the maximum flavour.
Can I freeze alp cheese?
Why freeze if you can order at Alpages.co.uk at any time? By freezing cheese, some of its great taste might get lost.
