RÜCKER Alter Schwede, naturally matured, Nordic-piquant, 100 g

Alter Schwede, for cheese connoisseurs!

Alter Schwede, the piquant classic among the naturally matured cheese specialties made by the family dairy Rücker. It is based on an old family recipe. Alter Schwede owes its typical Nordic-rich character to its traditional maturing process on untreated Nordic spruce boards where it is regularly rubbed with brine and rich red cultures. Made from 100 % German coast-side farmers’ milk, high-protein, lactose-free and a true North German character – convincing also beyond North German self-service cheese shelves.

By the way: Alter Schwede is also great for raclette!

Also available for cheese counters and in the variety Nordic-mild for your dairy products shelf.
