An immensely popular flavored cheese in areas of the southern United States is Goot Essa Der Smoked Alpen Kase. This hand-made, raw cow milk cheese is produced from our own recipe. This is our signature Der Alpen Kase coupled with a hickory smoked flavor. This cheese is produced in 5 lb half wheels for consistent smoking and aged about 12 months. The mix of wood smoke and Der Alpen tastes are enhanced by a dry, hard texture which imparts a sharp bite and lingering finish.
