Where is Gruyère Cheese Made and How is it Made?

Gruyère is a semi-hard to hard pressed cooked Alpine cheese made from cow’s milk, named after the Swiss Village of Gruyères (see our image above). The original cheese is made in Switzerland (though versions are made in parts of Germany, France and the US). An ancient cheese, early records show that it was made in 1115. It can be eaten on its own or used in cooking where it melts beautifully.
