Crowned Supreme Champion at the World Cheese Awards 2017, Kern is a very special cheese indeed.
A hard cheese, firm to the cut but slightly flaky in the middle, it is buttery with caramel notes and a deep savoury aroma.
A longer maturing cheese than Yarg, it develops over sixteen months within its handsome black wax coating.
Originally derived from a Gouda style cheese, Alpine starter cultures are added to give it individuality and to create a close texture, resembling Dutch and French/Swiss cheeses.
