Beaufort

Beaufort Cheese. Firm, fruity cheese from the French Alps. We sell a large amount of this delicious cheese – stronger than Comte. There are too types according to the season; a strong one and a milder one, but both have that unique mountain-milk flavour.

One of the finest French mountain cheeses – the ‘prince of Gruyeres’ according to Brillat-Savarin. Whole cheeses can weigh up to 60 kilos (132 pounds) and can use up to 450 litres of milk. It is thought to date back to Roman times.

The high mountain cheeses benefit from cattle grazing on supremely clean, unpolluted summer pastures studded with aromatic flowers and alpine flora, ultimately producing fragrant and elegant cheeses.
