Nothing can bring people together like a simple wedge of cheese. A new arrival, but steeped in centuries of cheese making history â€“ the 1655 Gruyere is a firm, natural rind raw milk cheese with remarkable flavor. With a melt in your mouth creamy texture, 1655 Gruyere lends subtle notes of warm toasted nuts and baked fruit. Enjoy the cheese on its own, drizzled with olive oil and paired with Creminelli charcuterie, or with a dollop of Amour Spreads blackberry jam. The name is a nod to the year 1655, when two brothers began producing this cheese commercially in the historic town of Gruyere, Switzerland.
