Le Brigand du Jorat

Throughout the 16th and 17th centuries, the famously dark Jorat forests of Switzerland were inhabited by marauding bandits who would stalk and steal from weary travelers. The legend lives on through word of mouth, and more unusually, through cheese. Decorated in fir trees, boasting a mahogany color and touting an earthy, nutty taste, Le Brigand du Jorat has a shadowy tale to tell. Aged for a minimum of 100 days, this semi-hard washed rind is ripened in raisinee: a dense and fragrant fruit juice that imparts hints of delicate fruity and hazelnut tones into this highly flavorful Alpine-style cheese.
