AlpenCheddar is made using a rare and highly experimental technique combining Quicke’s Mature Cheddar with Hofkäserei Kraus’ flagship cheese, Alp Blossom. The Mature Cheddar is added to the curds during the traditional Alpine cheesemaking process. The wheels are pressed into moulds and matured for 3 months in the home village of cheesemaker, Albert Kraus.
A unique texture, sweet aroma and flavour notes starting with hazelnut, moving through sweetness and acidity, before ending with a bright apricot finish. Great with Sandford Orchards' Tremlett's Bitter or Ice Cider.
This cheese has been thermized.

I bought the Alpencheddar Box when it was first introduced. It was just fantastic and the flavour was just 'out of this world' special. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for something a bit different. You will not be disappointed. I have recommended it to many of my fellow international cheese judges as 'Must be tasted' new cheese from Quicke's.
This was such a delight to discover in our local delicatessen (Leeches, Melbourn). I am regular visitor to the Austrian Alps and this transported me immediately to those wonderful Käsebrot lunches. Absolutely fantastic.
This new cheese is superb , the taste is subtle yet full of flavour and the texture is delightful .
If you are looking for something different then this is the one for you .
I would highly recommend this cheese to anyone , FANTASTIC .
