The Old Witch
The Old Witch (Die Alte Hexe) is a 100% raw cow’s milk cheese and the older sister of Red Witch. Though both cheeses start out the same, after aging 4 months, those wheels with the most potential are separated onto a different shelf and aged an additional 4 months, becoming Old Witch. Despite its long aging of 8 months, it retains an almost magical creaminess and mild, nutty flavor. The cheese is produced by Bodenseekäse in Rossrüti, in the northeastern part of Switzerland close to the German and Austrian borders.
